We Have Jesus

And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. – Matthew 17:8

We say, blessing the name of the Lord that we can say it, that there abides with us our Lord Jesus. At this day He is with us and will be with us even to the end of the world. Christ’s existence is not a fact confined to antiquity or to remote distance. By His Spirit He is actually in His church; we have seen Him, though not with eyes; we have heard Him, though not with ears; we have grasped Him, though not with hands; and we feed upon His flesh, which is meat indeed, and His blood, which is drink indeed. We have with us at this very day Jesus our friend, to whom we make known our secrets, and who beareth all our sorrows. We have Jesus our interpreting instructor, who still reveals His secrets to us, and leads us into the mind and name of God. We have Jesus still with us to supply us with strength, and in His power we still are mighty. We confess His reigning sovereignty in the church, and we receive His all-sufficient succors. The church is not decapitated, her Head abides in vital union with her; Jesus is no myth to us, whatever He may be to others; He is no departed shade, He is no heroic personification: in very deed there is a Christ, and though others see Him not, and even we with these eyes see Him not, yet in Him believing we rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. Oh, I trust it will never be so with us, that as we go about our life’s work, our religion shall melt into fiction and become nothing but mere sentiment, nothing but thought, and dream, and vision; but may our religion be a matter of fact, a walking with the living and abiding Saviour. Though Moses may be gone, and Elias may be gone, yet Jesus Christ abideth with us and in us, and we in Him, and so shall it be evermore. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
