The Personal Attractions of Jesus

The personal attractions of Jesus are all inviting and irresistible!

His love wins us.  His glory charms us. His beauty attracts us. His sympathy soothes us. His gentleness subdues us. His faithfulness inspires us.  He is the "altogether lovely One!"

Jesus is all that is tender in love. Jesus is all that is wise in counsel. Jesus is all that is patient and kind. Jesus is all that is faithful in friendship.  Jesus is all that is soothing and healing.

The heart of Jesus is ever loving towards His children. The disposition of Jesus is ever kind towards His children. The nature of Jesus is ever sympathizing towards His children.

Jesus is your Brother, your Friend, your Redeemer.  As your Brother, He knows the need of His brethren in adversity.  As your Friend, He shows Himself friendly.  As your Redeemer, He has redeemed your soul from sin and Hell.

Jesus has ascended up on high to take possession of Heaven on your behalf, and to prepare a place for you!  Upon His heart, He wears your name as a precious pearl in the priestly breastplate.

There is not a moment of your time,  nor an event of your life,  nor a circumstance of your daily history,   nor a mental or spiritual emotion of yours in which you are not borne upon the love, and remembered in the ceaseless intercession of Christ.

[Octavius Winslow]


Song of Solomon 5:16 ... His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

John 14:2 ... In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Hebrews 7:25 ...  Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.❤
