Words of Wisdom and Revelation # 14

Words of Wisdom and Revelation # 14

The personal attractions of Jesus!

(Octavius Winslow)
"Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved--and this is my Friend!" Song of Songs 5:16

The personal attractions of Jesus are all inviting and irresistible! 

His love wins us. 
His glory charms us. 
His beauty attracts us. 
His sympathy soothes us. 
His gentleness subdues us. 
His faithfulness inspires us. 

He is the "altogether lovely One!" 

Jesus is all that is tender in love. 
Jesus is all that is wise in counsel. 
Jesus is all that is patient and kind. 
Jesus is all that is faithful in friendship.
Jesus is all that is soothing and healing. 

The heart of Jesus is ever loving towards His children. 
The disposition of Jesus is ever kind towards His children. 
The nature of Jesus is ever sympathizing towards His children. 

Jesus is your Brother, your Friend, your Redeemer. 
As your Brother--He knows the need of His brethren in adversity. 
As your Friend--He shows Himself friendly. 
As your Redeemer--He has redeemed your soul from sin and Hell. 

Jesus has ascended up on high to take possession of Heaven on your behalf, and to prepare a place for you! 

Upon His heart, He wears your name as a precious pearl in the priestly breastplate. 

"He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them." There is . . .
  not a moment of your time, 
  nor an event of your life, 
  nor a circumstance of your daily history, 
  nor a mental or spiritual emotion of yours--
in which you are not borne upon the love, and remembered in the ceaseless intercession of Christ. 
"Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved--and this is my Friend!" Song of Songs 


For me!

"The Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me!" Galatians 2:20
Is Jesus precious to my heart?
Is He the object of my supreme admiration and delight?
Does He have my warmest affection?
Do I love Jesus above all?
I must light the torch of my affection for Christ--at the altar of Calvary. I must go there, and learn and believe what the love of Jesus is to me--the vastness of that love--the self-sacrifice of that love--how that love of Jesus . . .
  labored for me,
  and wept for me,
  and bled for me,
  and suffered for me,
  and died for me!
Can I stand before this love--this love . . .
  so precious, 
  so great, 
  so enduring, 
  so self-consuming, 
  so changeless--and know that . . .
    His sin-atoning sacrifice was for me,
    His cross was for me,
    His agony was for me,
    His scorn and insult was for me,
    His death was for me--
and feel no sensibility, no emotion, no love to Jesus? Impossible!
Do not be cast down, then, in vain regrets that your love to Christ is so frigid, so fickle, so dubious. Go and muse upon the reality and the greatness of the Savior's love to you--and if love can inspire love--while you muse, the fire will burn, and your soul shall be all in flame with love to Jesus!
