What a wonderful person is my glorious Lord Jesus! All the divine attributes are found in Him. As there are no limits to His fullness, there can be no limit to my supplies, or the least prospect of need.
Jesus is my divine Savior!
His bounty will supply me,
omnipotence will deliver me,
omnipresence will protect me,
omniscience will guard me,
His love will animate me,
mercy will heal me,
grace will support me,
compassion will comfort me,
pity will relieve me,
goodness will provide for me,
tenderness will soothe me,
His kindness will encourage me,
patience will bear with me,
justice will avenge me,
faithfulness will embolden me,
holiness will beautify me,
His life will quicken me,
light will illumine me,
His Word will regulate me,
joy will delight me,
blessedness will elevate me,
His long-suffering will lead me to repentance,
immutability will secure the fulfillment of all the promises to me,
His truth will be my shield and buckler,
sovereignty will raise my admiration,
His condescension will inspire me with gratitude and love,
and His all-sufficiency will satisfy me both in time and eternity!
In Jesus, God has reconciled me to Himself, imputing my trespasses to Him, and His obedience to me.
God by Jesus, takes away . . .
all my sins,
His own wrath, and
my deserved condemnation!
All good things . . .
are treasured up in Christ,
were procured for me by Christ,
flow to me through Christ, and
are conferred on me for the sake of Christ!
How exactly suited is the Lord Jesus to my case! Inflexible justice demands my blood, but He becomes my substitute, and spills His own!
In Jesus, I see my sin, and God’s justice meet!
He removes the one, and satisfies the other!
What is Jesus called in God’s holy Word?
A Savior, in reference to my lost condition.
A Reconciler, in reference to the enmity that existed between myself and God.
A Redeemer, in reference to my slavery to sin.
A Mediator, in respect to the disagreement between myself and the Most High God.
A Refiner, with respect to my filthiness.
An Advocate, with regard to my perplexed cause.
A Prophet, in respect to my ignorance.
A Priest, with a view to my guiltiness.
A King, in regard to my weakness and foes.
A Bridegroom, regarding my lowly estate and relationship.
A Physician, with regard to my many soul maladies.
In a word, Jesus is “All In All.”

the glory of His person,
the riches of His grace,
the perfection of His work,
the tenderness of His heart,
the strength of His love and
