Look At The King

Contemplate your blessed Redeemer, seated on His great white throne, encircled with heavenly glory!
Look at the King in His beauty!
It is the sight of a glorified Savior—that will make the heaven of the believer.
Endeavor now, by the eye of faith, to behold the Lord Jesus in all His matchless beauty and excellence.

Contemplate . . .  His glorious character;   His infinite mercy;   His unparalleled condescension,  and His boundless love!
There is enough in Jesus to employ the soul in rapturous meditation through a vast eternity!
His excellence, His goodness, and His love—can never be fathomed!

O keep your eye fixed on this adorable Savior, while you sojourn in this valley of tears; and in a little while you shall see Him as He is; face to face, and ascribe to Him unceasing praise!
[David Harsha]

1 Chronicles 16:29 ... Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
Psalm 24:7 ... Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Revelation 5:12 ... Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
