The Lord my Portion Summary

The Lord my Portion - The Lord’s people but imperfectly realize their boundless wealth. They resemble an heir to whom a vast estate has been bequeathed, but who yet remains ignorant of the rich and extensive mines which underlie its surface, filling every acre with veins of the richest ore, until some incidental upturned sod brings to light the precious deposit. God has given us His Word — a field of wealth incalculable; His Son — in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge; the covenant of grace — ordered in all things and sure; and Himself, our infinite, all-sufficient, all-satisfying, and inalienable — PORTION. Well may the apostle, summing up the inventory of our possessions, exclaim — as if no measurement or number could compass and compute their extent — “ALL THINGS are yours!”

Octavius Winslow, also known as "The Pilgrim's Companion", stood out as one of the foremost evangelical preachers of the 19th Century in England and America. A Baptist minister for most of his life and contemporary of Charles Spurgeon and J.C. Ryle, he seceded to the Anglican church in his last decade. His Christ centered works show devotion, practicality, and an experimental calvinism of the highest order. His writings are richly devotional and warm the soul and inflames the heart with sincere love, reverence, and praise to Christ.
