JESUS, THERE IS NO OTHER NAME, THAT CAN MATCH THE NAME JESUS, OR HIS PERSON. JESUS.
"Yes! He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved, this my Friend!" Song of Songs 5:16
.
Christ is the most beautiful Person, and the most fitting Object for your love. There never was, nor will be found any person so lovely, so beautiful, and so every way deserving of your love as the Lord Jesus Christ. There is a matchless, transcendent, and incomparable beauty and excellency in Him!How passionately are some foolish men in love with the external beauty which they see in some women! They love the exact symmetry of parts, and lovely proportion of the body, the amiable features and lovely mixtures of colors in the face, the beauty of the eyes and features, their graceful motions, and amorous glances. How does this ravish the hearts of some foolish men, although the most beautiful woman in the world is no better than a mixture of clay, dirt, and corruption enclosed in a lovely skin; which sickness will cause to look pale and ashen and death will fully mar and spoil! But the amiableness and beauty of Christ is more transcendent and permanent, and therefore, a more fit object for your love. Christ is all fair without any spot; altogether lovely without any blemish or deformity!
