What do you think of Christ?” Matthew 22:42
I am ashamed of my thoughts of Him—they are so poor, and so unworthy of Him. He is so great, and so glorious, and so good, and so gracious—that I cannot think of Him as I desire to.
Do you inquire what I think of His person? He is the chief among ten thousand, and the altogether lovely One! He unites in Himself Deity and Manhood—
“All human beauties—all Divine,
In my Beloved meet and shine!”
Do you ask what I think of His work? It is perfect! His obedience is spotless! His atonement is complete! His work of redemption is accomplished, “It is Finished!”
Do you ask what I think of His love? Ah, here it is that I am most at fault—and no wonder, for His love surpasses knowledge! Its height and depth, its length and its breadth—are immeasurable! His love is free, unchanging, and eternal. It is unparalleled—it is Dying love! He loved me—and gave Himself for me! Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends—but Jesus laid down His life for His enemies!
“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully!” Ephesians 3:19
