The month of April is said to derive its name from the Latin verb aperio, which signifies to open, because all of the buds of blossoms are now opening, and we have arrived at the gates of the flowery year.

 

In beginning a new month, let us seek the same desires after our Lord as those which glowed in the heart of the elect spouse. See how she leaps at once to Him; there are no prefatory words; she does not even mention His name; she is in the heart of her theme at once, for she speaks of Him who was the only Him in the world to her.

 

How bold is her love! It was much condescension which permitted the weeping penitent to anoint His feet with spikenard – it was rich love which allowed the gentle Mary to sit at His feet and learn of Him – but here, love, strong, fervent love, aspires to higher tokens of regard, and closer signs of fellowship.

 

Esther trembled in the presence of Ahasuerus, but the spouse of joyful liberty of perfect love knows no fear. If we have received the same free spirit, we also may ask the like. By kisses we suppose to be intended those varied manifestations of affection by which the believer is made to enjoy the love of Jesus.

 

The kiss of reconciliation we enjoyed at our conversion; and it was sweet as honey dropping from the comb. The kiss of acceptance is still warm on our brow, and we know that He hath accepted our persons and our works through rich grace. The kiss of daily, communion; is that which we pant after to be repeated day after day, till it is changed into the kiss of reception, which removes the soul from earth, and the kiss of consummation which fills it with the joy of heaven.

 

Faith is the road, but communion with Jesus is the well from which the pilgrim drinks. O lover of our souls, be not strange to us; let the limps of Thy blessing meet the lips of our asking; let the lips of Thy fullness touch the lips of our need, and straightway the kiss will be effectuated.

Whether it is the thirst of avarice, ambition, pleasure, knowledge, or rest, whoever suffers from it is invited! “2013”

Provision is made most plenteously; all is provided that we can ever need to quench our soul’s thirst. To our conscience the atonement brings peace; to our understanding the gospel brings the richest instructions; to our hearts the person of Jesus is the noblest object of affection; to our entire being the truth as it is in Jesus supplies nutriment. Though the soul may be utterly famished, Jesus can restore it.

 

Admirable indeed is the longsuffering of the Savior in bearing with some of us year after year! Patience had her perfect work in the Lord Jesus, and until the last day of the feast He pleaded with the Jews, even as on this last day of the year He pleads with us, and waits to be gracious to us. Wonder of wonders that we are still in the land of mercy!

 

Piety expressed herself most plainly, for Jesus cried, which implies not only the loudness of His voice, but the tenderness of His tones. He entreats us to be reconciled. How deep must be the love which makes the Lord weeps over us, and like a mother, woo His children to His bosom! Surely at the call of such cry our willing hearts will come.

GOD'S MERCY DECEMBER 31 2012-1

Who is Jesus Christ?

Posted in ALMIGHTY GOD, BORN OF A WOMAN, CONCEIVED BY GOD, GOD IN THE FLESH, God is not a religion, JESUS CHRIST, MERCY AND GRACE, Religion, VERDURE OF GRACE, WHO IS JESUS? on December 23, 2012 by sheriffali

People say He is the Son of God

Others say He is Savior and Lord,

But who is man called Jesus Christ?

God in the flesh with power and might!

 

Jesus Christ is God’s effulgence

God’s unequivocal Omnipotence,

His days cannot be enumerated

Pangs and Pines He abated

 

In times of sorrow He is efficacy

Dispenser of grace and mercy,

Jesus emanates from a glorious light

So, forever hold Him tight

 

Christ is the executor of appanage

And the strength of all courage,

Not only in need should He be Lord

But know, every day, He is Almighty God!

“Jesus is the verdure of grace, the emblem of peace and a significant token of triumph. On the Lion of Judah – Jesus Christ; the broken hearted can ride like Queens and Kings!”

 

“When Jesus rose from the dead; primeval darkness heard the Almighty Fiat.”
