One perfect sweet!

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!”

“O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted.” Isaiah 54:11
