Spurgeon, "Altogether Lovely")
"Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my
Beloved, and this is my Friend." Song 5:16
Jesus is to the true saint, the only
altogether lovely one in the world.
There is no loveliness anywhere else.
Christ has engrossed all the beauty and
all the loveliness in the entire universe.
Jesus is the monopolizer
of all loveliness,
and the engrosser of all that is admirable
in the entire universe!
As all the rivers meet in the sea, so
all beauties unite in the Redeemer.
