Summary: Jesus is the Altogether Lovely one
SONG OF SOLOMON 5:16 "THE ALTOGETHER LOVELY ONE"
* Note v.10 - Jesus Christ is the Chiefest of ten thousand! * No one else can compare! * No equal.
* Among men ... Conceived of the Holy Ghost, born of a virgin, an earthly mother and a heavenly
Father! * Among other Gods ... Jesus resurrected!
A) Among friends ... Jesus is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother! * Jesus gave His all!
* He left the beauty of heaven and came to earth! * He wore a crown of thorns so we could wear
a crown of life! * He walked up Calvary’s road so we could walk on streets of gold!
B) He was crucified on a cross and died so that we might live!
* He was treated unjustly so we could be justified! * He went to hell so we could go to heaven!
C) No comparison! * When you see great men of the Bible you see their strength & weaknesses!
* But when you see Jesus ... all strength! * No weaknesses in the Son of God!
* "I find no fault in Him!" * When you look at Jesus you see the Altogether Lovely One!
* When you look at Jesus you see the chiefest of ten thousand!
D) Before Calvary, during Calvary, after Calvary, He is the Altogether Lovely One!
