The Richest Jewel

Christ is the richest jewel in the cabinet of glory! He is the sparkling pearl of great price! Whoever has Him cannot be poor; whoever lacks Him cannot be rich! 

Christ's members are the happiest! Christ's precepts are the purest! Christ's love is the truest! Christ's comforts are the sweetest! Christ's reward is the highest! Christ's riches are the most precious!  Christ's glory is the greatest! 

Oh! sirs! Christ is the glory of God, the paradise of angels, the beauty of Heaven, the Redeemer of men!

[William Dyer]

Hebrews 1:3 ... Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

2 Corinthians 4:6 ... For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Romans 16:27 ... To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
