One perfect sweet!
(The following is by Spurgeon)
"You are fairer than the children of men." Psalm 45:2
The entire person of Jesus is but as one gem, and
his life is all along but one impression of the seal.
He is altogether complete; not only in his several parts,
but as a gracious all-glorious whole. His character is not
a mass of fair colors mixed confusedly, nor a heap of
precious stones laid carelessly one upon another; he
is a picture of beauty and a breastplate of glory.
In him, all traits are in their proper places, and assist
in adorning each other. Not one feature in his glorious
person attracts attention at the expense of others; but
he is perfectly and altogether lovely.
Oh, Jesus! your power, your grace, your justice, your
tenderness, your truth, your majesty, and your immutability
make up such a man, or rather such a God-man, as neither
heaven nor earth has seen elsewhere!
Your infancy, your eternity, your sufferings, your
triumphs, your death, and your immortality, are all
woven in one gorgeous tapestry, without seam or rent.
You are music without discord.
As all the colors blend into one resplendent rainbow,
so all the glories of heaven and earth meet in you,
and unite so wondrously, that there is none like you
in all things; nay, if all the virtues of the most excellent
were bound in one bundle, they could not rival you!
You are mirror of all perfection.
You have been anointed with the holy oil of myrrh and
cassia, which your God has reserved for you alone.
And as for your fragrance, it is as the holy perfume,
the like of which none other can ever mix, even with
the art of the apothecary. Your every spice is fragrant,
and the compound is divine.
"Oh, sacred symmetry! oh, rare combination,
Of many perfects, to make one perfection!
Oh, heavenly music, where all parts do meet
In one sweet strain, to make one perfect sweet!"
