The perfect husband

Posted by on Dec 28, 2011 in Grace Gems, James Smith | 1 comment

There is but one object that can be presented to a sinner’s mind, which contains all that is needful for him, and all that is delightful to him–and that is JESUS! In Jesus, he finds an infinite variety which is always pleasing and profitable! The more he knows of the person, perfections, and works of Immanuel–the more happy, holy, and useful he will be.  Unbounded kindness, unparalleled meekness, and exquisite tenderness–shine in all His dealings with His people! He has never left room for one to doubt . . .
the kindness of His heart,
the power of His arm, or
the faithfulness of His Word.

Jesus loved, labored, suffered, bled, died, rose, ascended, and intercedes–to save His people from their sins! He is the perfect husband who . . .
brings us into marriage-union with Himself,
provides for all our necessities, and
assures us of His unalterable love!
He gives us . . .
His arm to support us,
His fullness to supply us,
His name to entitle us,
His robe to cover us,
His angels to guard us,
His Word to assure us, and
His Heaven to be our habitation at last!

To know Christ–is true wisdom;
to love Him–is the evidence of grace; and
to walk with Him–is the highest honor that can be put upon a sinful creature!

It is the delight of a truly spiritual mind to think of Jesus, feed on Him, and rejoicein Him. There is nothing in Christ–but what is precious to him. Christ is the objectof his faith, love, and desire; and the subject of his meditation, boast, and song in the house of his pilgrimage. To a Christian, Christ is ALL!

The believer is knit to Jesus, walks in fellowship with Him, and desires above all things to exalt and glorify Him. Jesus is just suited to the believer, and he thinks on Him with great delight and satisfaction!

Todd Friel uses an excellent example of why bringing a little context to your Gospel message makes a whole lot of difference.

I can’t believe they used a Julian Smith video to do it, though!  On second thought… I can.  It’s Todd, haha!

When He comes to us in the garb of pain or sorrow

Posted by on Oct 3, 2011 in Grace Gems, J. R. Miller | 0 comments

“He came unto His own–but His own did not receive Him.” John 1:11

We say that the Jews, “His own,” were very ungrateful to treat their Messiah in this way; and also that their rejection was a terrible wrong to themselves, for they thrust away in Christ, the most glorious things of Heaven and eternity!

But how is it with ourselves? Christ comes to us. He is continually coming. His hands are full of blessings. Do we really take from the hand of Christ–all that He offers to us? Do we not daily grieve Him and rob ourselves of blessings–by declining what He brings?

Especially do we reject Christ often–when He comes to us in the garb of pain or sorrow. Many times the blessings which He brings to us then–are the very richest and the most precious in all His treasury of grace!

But how many of us receive Christ as gladly, and take the gifts from His hand as cheerfully and gratefully, when He comes in grief or suffering–as when He comes in the garb of joy or worldly prosperity?

Why should we not do so? Can we not trust His love and wisdom?

He never sends pain–unless pain is best for us.

He never chastens us–unless there is a blessing in the chastening.

Thanks Grace Gems! (J.R. Miller, “Daily Bible Readings in the Life of Christ” 1890)
