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!
