—-he is altogether lovely—- Song 5:16
If you are tired of all the bad news, weary of all the political debates, fed-up with all the materialism, and sick of all the self-promotion, Easter ought to be like a breath of fresh air. It changes our focus from the corruption of this wicked world to the glories of Christ. To prepare your heart for the Easter celebration, these words from an unknown person ought to thrill your heart:
Christ the Chiefest, or better than the rest.
His love is unknowable. (Eph 3:19).
His riches are unsearchable. (Eph 3:18).
His joy is unspeakable. (1 Pet 1:8).
His ways are untrackable. (Rom 11:33).
His grace is inexhaustible. (2 Cor 9:8).
His peace is unfathomable. (Phil 4:7).
And He Himself is unsurpassable. (Ex. 15:11).
His character was beautiful with holiness in every detail. (Heb 7:26).
His love was pure and faithful in all its affection. (Jn 13:1).
His service was true and beneficent in all its workings. (Acts 10:38).
His words were tender and true in all their utterances. (Jn 7:45).
His life was consistent in every department. (Mt. 27:24; Acts 2:22).
His aim was single and concentrated in glorifying God. (Jn 17:4).
His mission was to benefit all who would have Him in dying a death
which they deserved. (2 Cor. 8:9)
Christ is Christianity, and the best evidence of Christianity is Christ.
