Ah, here it is that I am most at fault!
("Every Day!" Author unknown, 1872)
"What do you think of Christ?" Matthew 22:42
I am ashamed of my thoughts of Him — they are so poor, and so unworthy of Him. He is so great, and so glorious, and so good, and so gracious — that I cannot think of Him as I desire to.
Do you inquire what I think of His person? He is the chief among ten thousand, and the altogether lovely One! He unites in Himself, Deity and Manhood —
"All human beauties — all Divine,
In my Beloved meet and shine!"
Do you ask what I think of His work? It is perfect! His obedience is spotless! His atonement is complete! His work of redemption is accomplished, "It is Finished!"
Do you ask what I think of His love? Ah, here it is that I am most at fault — and no wonder, for His love surpasses knowledge! Its height and depth, its length and its breadth — are immeasurable! His love is free, unchanging, and eternal. It is unparalleled — it is Dying love! He loved me — and gave Himself for me! Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends — but Jesus laid down His life for His enemies! "Christ died for the ungodly!" Romans 5:6
"May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully!" Ephesians 3:19
