Summary: How glorious and incomparable is the very name of Jesus Christ our precious Lord and Savior
The Glories Of Our Incomparable Lord
Ps. 45:2, “Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.”
Songs of Solomon;2:1, “I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.”
Rev 4:11, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
These are but a faint indication of the glories of our Lord, he is the only one worthy of the glories of heaven.
When men attempt to preach about Christ we fail in our description, people all around us still cry just as those Greeks did, “Sir, we would see Jesus.” As that great preacher of old, Paul the Apostle said, “We preach Christ.” They said about Paul, “He turned the world upside down.”
He shook the world of his day, his message was Christ Jesus. Peter said, “Thou art the Christ the son of the living God.” he had walked with Jesus and talked with him but Jesus said, “Flesh and blood hath not revealed this unto thee, but my Father up in heaven.”
Jesus is the son of God, he is our life, our Savior, our light, our food, our drink and our shepherd..He is our security, our song, and our sovereign, with all of this we must still realize that the half has not been told.
We could put all reason, revelation, wisdom, and knowledge together and still not be able to reveal all the glories of that peerless person, that incomparable Savior. He is older than his mother and the same age as his Father, he is from everlasting to everlasting, he is the same yeaterday, today, and tomorrow, he is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.
Over the last 2000 years the greatest minds in the world have studied his life, both men that are saved and those that are not they’ve studied his ministry, his death, and his resurrection, and the verdict of long ago still stands, “We find in him no fault, he is perfect.”
Artists have painted him, sculptors have made statues, poets have tried to describe him in prose, and songs have tried to reveal him, but all in all, humanity has not touched “the hem of his garment.”
He wipes the tears from the eyes of those with agonizing hearts, his tender touch transforms the transgressors, by his words sinners are saved, he takes man from their rags to his riches, out of their grief to his glory.
He has bathed the Bible with his own blood, from Genesis to Revelation, cut it anywhere, and the blessed blood of the Son of God will flow.
He is the Lamb of God, the Lion of Judah, he is the rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley, and he is the bright and morning star. He is the foundation, the chief cornerstone, he is the desire of all troubled hearts, to a spiritually starved soul, he is the bread of life, to the thirsty wayfarer he is the water of life, and to the sinful soul he is our Savior.
John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
He walked upon this earth for 33 ½ years, he never built a hospital, he never built an asylum, but he healed many bodies of their infirmities and restored many deranged minds. He was and is our great physician.
Satan could not lead him to temptation, death could not destroy him, the tomb could not hold him, the laws of gravity did not stop his ascention, he was feared by the demons, and above all he is exalted by the Father. “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”
I. His Birth: Think about this he vacated his heavenly eternal throne to bring victory to the victims of vice, and salvation to sinners, he lay aside his royal robes, took off his divine diadem, he lay aside his scepter of universal power from his omnipotent hand, then he robed himself in a garment of flesh, “And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us. From the glories of heaven to a manger in Bethlehem, from the bosom of the Father to the breast of the Virgin Mary. From prominence to poverty he came.
Paul said “he made himself of no reputation he took upon himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.”
He was born in a barn, he lived in a despised town, he knew the pinch of poverty, and he owned only the clothes that he wore.
