What Christ Is To His People

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!
