Why do we love Jesus?

by Spurgeon-

"You whom my soul loves." -Song of Solomon 1:7

Why do we love Jesus?

Because he "gave himself for us."
We have life through his death;
we have peace through his blood.
Though he was rich, yet for our sakes he became poor.

Why do we love Jesus?

Because of the excellency of his person.
We are filled with a sense of his beauty!
an admiration of his charms!
a consciousness of his infinite perfection!

His greatness, goodness, and loveliness, in one resplendent ray,
combine to enchant the soul till it is so ravished that it exclaims,
"Yes, he is altogether lovely."

Blessed love this- a love which binds the heart with chains
more soft than silk, and yet more firm than adamant!
