‘As the deer pants for streams of water so my soul pants for you, O God’. (Psalm 42:1)

In Dr. S. M. Lockridge's classic sermon, “The Lordship of Jesus Christ”, he described who Jesus really is:

He is enduringly strong.
He is entirely sincere.
He is eternally steadfast.
He is immortally gracious.
He is imperially powerful.
He is impartially merciful.

He is the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizons of the globe.

He is God's son.
He is the sinner's Saviour.
He is the captive's ransom.
He is the breath of life.
He is the centrepiece of civilization.
He stands in the solitude of Himself.

He is august and He is unique.
He is unparalleled and He is unprecedented.
He is undisputed and He is undefiled.
He is unsurpassed and He is unshakeable.

He is the lofty idea in philosophy.
He is the highest personality in psychology.
He is the supreme subject in literature.
He is the unavoidable problem in higher criticism.
He is the fundamental doctrine of theology.
He is the cornerstone, the capstone and the stumbling stone of all religion.
He is the miracle of the ages.

He is the key to knowledge.
He is the wellspring of wisdom.
He is the foundation of faith.
He is the doorway of deliverance.
He is the pathway to peace.
He is the roadway of righteousness.
He is the gateway to glory.
He is the highway to happiness.

His office is manifold
And His promise is sure.

His life is matchless
and His goodness is limitless.
His mercy is enough
and His grace sufficient.
His reign is righteous,
His yoke is easy,
and His burden is light.

He is indestructible.
He is indescribable.
He is incomprehensible.
He is inescapable.
He is invincible.
Hi is irresistible.
He is irrefutable.

I can't get Him out of my mind.
And I can't get Him out of my heart.
I can't outlive Him.
I can't live without Him.

The Pharisees couldn't stand Him
but found they couldn't stop Him.
Satan tried to tempt Him
but found he couldn't trip Him.
Pilate placed Him on trial
but found no fault in Him.
The Romans crucified Him
but couldn't take His life.
Death couldn't handle Him
and the grave couldn't hold Him.

He's the Lion and He's the Lamb.
He is God and He is man.
He's the seven-way King:
He is the King of the Jews... That's a racial King.
He is the King of Israel... That's a national King.
He is the King of righteousness... That's a moral King.
He is the King of the ages... That's an eternal King.
He is the King of Heaven... That's a universal King.
He is the King of glory... That's a celestial King.
And finally -

I think that just about sums it up.

Have a good week mediating on who Jesus is.
