That’s my KING and SAVIOUR

The incomparable Christ

He came from the throne of the Father to the womb of a woman. He put on

humanity that we might put on divinity. He became Son of Man that we might

become sons of God. He was born in a supernatural way, lived in poverty and

was reared in obscurity. He had neither wealth nor influence, yet the wisdom of

men has never matched His wisdom. Never has a man spoken like this man. His

family was inconspicuous and uninfluential. In infancy He startled a king. As a

boy, He stunned theologians with His knowledge and wisdom for He was taugh

of God. In manhood, He ruled the elements and quieted the raging sea. He

healed the multitudes without medicine. And fed thousands from a boy’s lunch.

Even demons obeyed Him and He gave back life to those who died. He never

wrote a book, yet none of the libraries of the world can contain the books that

have been written about Him. He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the

theme of more songs than all song writers combined. He never founded a

college, yet all the colleges together cannot boast of as many students as He has.

He never marshaled an army, yet no leader has ever had more volunteers. Great

men have come and gone yet He lives all. Herod could not kill Him. Satan could

not tempt Him to sin. 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

sakes He became poor. He slept in another’s manger. He rode on another’s

donkey. He was buried in another’s grave. He conquered death and rose on the

third day as He said He would. He ascended into heaven and is now at the right

hand of the throne of God. One day He will return with power and great glory to

judge the world when every knee shall bow to Him and every tongue shall

confess Him as Lord. His friends gladly. But enemies seeking for a place to hide

from His face. He is the perfect one. The only one who can satisfy the soul. He

gives everlasting life to those who love Him. He is altogether lovely. But best of

all, He is my Savior.
