This is my Friend!

(Octavius Winslow)

“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 . . .
catching our sighs,
drying our tears,
providing for our needs,
guiding us by His counsel, and
afterwards to receive us to glory!

O what a Savior is Jesus Christ!

As He is known–all other beings are eclipsed.

When His beauty is seen–all other beauty fades.

As 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!

This is my Friend!

“Dear friend, make God your Confidant. Carry to Him all your needs, disclose to Him all your sorrows, confide to Him all your secrets, confess to Him all your sins. He will do all, soothe all, supply all, and pardon all–for who is a God like Him? He cares for you, His loving heart is towards you, His un-slumbering eye is upon you! Oh, how condescendingly kind and gentle is Jesus to poor sinners who feel their need of Him, and are conscious that they can do nothing without Him! You will always meet with a kind welcome from Jesus, come when you may and how you will.” Mary Winslow
