"Be thankful unto Him, and bless His name."
Our Lord would have all His people rich in high and happy thoughts concerning His blessed person. Jesus is not content that His brethren should think meanly of Him; it is His pleasure that His espoused ones should be delighted with His beauty.
We are not to regard Him as a bare necessary, like to bread and water, but as a luxurious delicacy, as a rare and ravishing delight. To this end He has revealed Himself as the "pearl of great price" in its peerless beauty, as the "bundle of myrrh" in its refreshing fragrance, as the "rose of Sharon" in its lasting perfume, as the "lily" in its spotless purity.
As a help to high thoughts of Christ, remember the estimation that Christ is had in beyond the skies, where things are measured by the right standard.
Think how God esteems the Only Begotten, His unspeakable gift to us. Consider what the angels think of Him, as they count it their highest honour to veil their faces at His feet.
Consider what the blood-washed think of Him, as day without night they sing His well deserved praises. High thoughts of Christ will enable us to act consistently with our relations towards Him.
The more loftily we see Christ enthroned, and the more lowly we are when bowing before the foot of the throne, the more truly shall we be prepared to act our part towards Him.
Our Lord Jesus desires us to think well of Him, that we may submit cheerfully to His authority. High thoughts of Him increase our love. Love and esteem go together.
Therefore, believer, think much of your Master's excellencies.
Study Him in His primeval glory, before He took upon Himself your nature! Think of the mighty love which drew Him from His throne to die upon the cross! Admire Him as He conquers all the powers of hell! See Him risen, crowned, glorified! Bow before Him as the Wonderful, the Counsellor, the mighty God, for only thus will your love to Him be what it should.
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free.
I confess that He is the son of God.
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.
“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner,
but in the truth which it contains.”
.... Reflection and inspiration from the "Prince of Preachers,"
Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God,
without acquiring any monetary reward.
God gave me the salvation for free,
so I share the gospel of his word the same way ..
