Jesus came leaping!
(William Dyer, "Christ's Famous Titles")
"The voice of my Beloved! Look! Here He comes, leaping over the mountains, bounding over the hills!" Song of Songs 2:8
The Scriptures tell us that Jesus came leaping! He came with such love — that He came leaping!
When a man goes leaping — you may know that it was with a great eagerness.
Jesus came leaping! How so? He came leaping . . .
from the throne — to the womb,
from the womb — to the cradle,
from the cradle — to the cross, and
from thence, to the throne again!
This was His great leap! Oh! sirs, oh! sirs — how eagerly did Jesus suffer and die for poor believers!
"Christ loved us — and gave Himself up for us!" Ephesians 5:2
