The Full Glory of the Sun of Righteousness

But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings. _ Malachi 4:2

In the person of Jesus Christ, the immeasurable grace of God is treasured up. God has done for us by Christ Jesus exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask, or even think. It is not possible even for imagination to conceive of any person more gracious than God in Christ Jesus. You cannot desire, certainly you cannot require, anything that should exceed what is found of grace in the person, offices, work, and death of the only begotten…There is an equal fullness of truth about our Lord. He Himself, as He comes to us as the revelation and manifestation of God, declares to us, not some truth, but all truth. All of God is in Christ; and all of God means all that is true, and all that is right, and all that is faithful, and all that is just, all that is according to righteousness arid holiness. Christ Jesus has brought to us the justice, truth, and righteousness of God to the full: He is the Lord our righteousness. There are no reserves of disagreeable faith in Christ. There is nothing hidden from us of truth that might alarm us, nor anything that might have shaken our confidence; nor, on the other hand, is any truth kept back which might have increased our steadfastness. He says, “If it were not so I would have told you.” Admire the full-robed splendor of the Sun of Righteousness. Our Lord’s ministry is not truth alone, nor grace alone; but it is a balanced, well-ordered system of grace and truth. The Lord Himself is in His character “just and having salvation.” He is both King of righteousness and King of peace. He does not even save unjustly, nor does He proclaim truth unlovingly. Grace and truth are equally conspicuous in Him. All truth and all grace dwell in Christ in all their fullness beyond conception, and the two lie in each other’s bosoms forever, to bless us with boundless, endless joy and glory. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
