One with Him

“The LORD has sworn and will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek’ ” by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant. – Hebrews 7: 21, 22

I do not think it should be a matter of option with you whether you will now consider the greatness of your Lord or not; it is His due and right that you should consider His greatness. For He of whom we speak,-“this Man,” is one well known among us. If you be true to your profession He is one most dear to you, to whom you owe all things, aye, owe your very selves. He is one between whom and you there is a troth plighted: you are espoused unto Him, your hearts are His, even as His heart is yours. If you do not consider Him, who will? He has loved you, and given Himself for you. Strangers may listen to our teaching at this time, and in vain we may cry,

“Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?
Is it nothing to you that Jesus should die?”

But you are no stranger, you are not even a guest in His house, but you are a child living at home with Him. He is your brother, and much more; for He is bone of your bone, and flesh of your flesh. All your interests are wrapped up in Him. You are one with Him: by an endless union, one. I claim, therefore, and I am sure you assent at once to the claim, that you should often consider your Lord, and the greatness of His nature, person, office, and work. His greatness should be your perpetual theme…I urge it on you that you do now consider with your whole heart and mind, how great this Man is. Do you not consent to the claim? ~ C.H. Spurgeon
