YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM
Arise, believer, and behold the Lord Jesus yoking the whole of his divine Godhead to the chariot of salvation! How vast his grace, how firm his faithfulness, how unswerving his immutability, how infinite his power, how limitless his knowledge! All these are by the Lord Jesus made the pillars of the temple of salvation—and all, without diminution of their infinity, are covenanted to us as our perpetual inheritance.
The fathomless love of the Savior’s heart is every drop of it ours: every sinew in the arm of might, every jewel in the crown of majesty, the immensity of divine knowledge, and the sternness of divine justice, all are ours, and shall be employed for us. The whole of Christ, in his adore-able character as the Son of God, is by himself made over to us most richly to enjoy.
His wisdom is our direction, his knowledge our instruction, his power our protection, his justice our surety, his love our comfort, his mercy our solace, and his immutability our trust. He makes no reserve, but opens the recesses of the Mount of God and bids us to dig in its mines for the hidden treasures. “All, all, all are yours,” he says, “be satisfied with favor and full of the goodness of the Lord.”
Oh! how sweet to behold Jesus, and to call upon him with the certain confidence that in seeking the interposition of his love or power, we are but asking for that which he has already faithfully promised.
