O what a Savior!

(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 . . .O what a Savior!
to catch our sighs,
dry our tears,
provide for our needs,
guide us by His counsel, and
afterwards to receive us to glory!

O what a Savior is Jesus Christ!

When He is known–all other beings are eclipsed.

Because When His beauty is seen–all other beauty fades.

When 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!

(Newman Hall, “Meditations on the Lord’s Prayer” 1889)

“You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted;
You encourage them, and you listen to their cry.”
Psalm 10:17

We may draw near to God in our chamber, and
amidst the varied toils, sorrows and joys of daily
life. Not only may we bring to Him our greatest
necessities and bitterest griefs; but all our little
, purposes, hopes and fears, and know He

loves to listen.

“Cast all your cares on Him because He cares
for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
