What is Christ to you? Read my latest blog post and let me know what Christ means in your life.
John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” As a shepherd care for his sheep, so Christ cares for us and makes every provision that we have need of.
He is a Lamb to redeem them; a Brother to love them; a Friend to stick to them; a Shield to defend them; a Tower to secure them; a Fountain to cleanse them. He is Bread to sustain them; Wisdom to guide them; a Rose to revive them; a Star to direct them; and a Sun to shine on them.
In Christ there is rest for the weary; food for the hungry; drink for the thirsty; grace for the needy; salvation for the lost. He is a Hard Stone to break us; a Load Stone to draw us; a Foundation Stone to bear us; a Precious Stone to enrich us; and a Top Stone to crown us. We are washed in his blood; saved by his grace; clothed in his righteousness; and crowned with his glory. He is lovely to his Father; lovely to the angels; and very lovely to the saints. The Father loves him. He is the glory of heaven; the dread of hell; and the joy of earth.
Christ has loved us savingly; he will love us continually. He died to redeem us. He lives to crown us. No wonder the redeemed of the Lord are a happy people!
