The heart 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,
and glory charms us.
His beauty attracts us,
and sympathy soothes us.
His gentleness subdues us,
and His faithfulness inspires us.

He is the “altogether lovely One!”

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

The heart of Jesus is ever-loving towards His children,
and 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,
and 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 . . .The heart of Jesus
not a moment of your time,
nor an event of your life,
or 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 5:16
