When His beauty is seen
“Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved, and this is my Friend!” Song of Songs 5:16
O what a Savior is Jesus Christ! He is the chief among ten thousand! Look at His sinless, yet real humanity–without a single taint, yet sympathizing with us in all our various conditions–our afflictions–our temptations–our infirmities–our griefs. Now that He is in glory, He is still cherishing a brother’s heart–bending down His ear to our petitions–ever standing near . . .
to catch our sighs,
to dry our tears,
to provide for our needs,
to guide us by His counsel, and
afterwards to receive us to glory!
O what a Savior is Jesus Christ!
When He is known–all other beings are eclipsed.
When His beauty is seen–all other beauty fades.
When His love is felt–He becomes supremely enthroned in the affections.
To know Him more, becomes the one desire of the renewed mind; and to make Him more known, is the one aim of the Christian life. O what a Savior is Jesus Christ!
