THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST

“Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  (Philippians 2:9-11 NASB)

From an unknown source:

“He became Son of Man that we might become sons of God.  He came from Heaven, where winds never blow, flowers never fade.  They never ‘phone for a doctor’, for there no one is ever sick.  No undertakers and no graveyards for no one ever dies — no one is ever buried.

He lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity.  He had neither wealth nor influence and had neither training nor education.  His relatives were inconspicuous and uninfluential.

In infancy He startled a king; in boyhood He puzzled the doctors; in manhood He walked upon the billows and hushed the sea to sleep.  He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His services.  He never wrote a book, yet not all the libraries of the country could hold all the books that could be written about Him.  He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the theme of more songs than all the songwriters combined.  He never founded a college, yet all the schools together cannot boast of as many students as He has.  Great men have come and gone, yet He lives on.  Death could not destroy Him; the grave could not hold Him.

He laid aside His purple robe for a peasant’s gown.  He was rich, yet for our sake He became poor.  How poor?  Ask Mary!  Ask the Wise Men!  He slept in another’s manger.  He cruised the lake in another’s boat.  He rode on another man’s donkey.  He was buried in another man’s tomb.  All failed, but He never.  The ever-Perfect One, He is the Chief among ten thousand.  He is altogether lovely.”

As the “altogether lovely one”… We recommend Him to you.
