"He carries the lambs in his bosom."
Isaiah 40:11.

Spurgeon, "Jesus and the Lambs" No. 794.

The bosom, why that is the tenderest place,
where we should put a poor creature that
had a broken bone, and could not bear to
be roughly touched.

The bosom, that is the safest place. It
makes one wish to be always a lamb, if
one could always ride in that chariot.
Delightful is the weakness, which casts
us upon such gracious strength.

"He carries the lambs in his bosom."
Why, that is the most honorable place.
We would not put into our bosom that which
was despised. We should not think of
carrying there anything which was not
choice and dear and exceedingly precious.

So, you weak one, though you think yourself
to be less than nothing, and are nothing in
yourself, yet you shall have all the security
which the heart of Deity can give you, all
the comfort that the love of Christ can pour
upon you, all the honor and dignity which
nearness, and fellowship, and dearness of
love can bestow upon a poor mortal. Rejoice,
you lambs, that you have such a Shepherd
to carry you near his heart!

"He carries the lambs in his bosom."
