Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready. – Revelation 19:7
This glorious Son, whose fame is to be spread abroad, is most certainly God-of that we have spoken, but He is also most assuredly man, our brother, bone of our bone, and flesh of our flesh. Do we not delight to believe that He, tempted in all points as we are, has never yet submitted to be stained by sin? Never such a man as He, head of the race, the second Adam, the everlasting Father-who among us would not do Him reverence? Will we not seek His honor, seeing that now He lifts our race to be next to the throne of God.
Was there ever such a life as His? O beloved, what tenderness, what compassion, yet what holy boldness; what love for sinners, and yet what love for truth! Men who have not loved Him have nevertheless admired Him, and hearts in which we least expected to see such recognition of His excellence have nevertheless been deeply affected as they have studied His life. We must praise Him, for He is “chief among ten thousand, and altogether lovely.” It were treason to be silent when the hour has come to speak of Him who is peerless among men and matchless among angels. Clap, clap your hands at the thought of the marriage of the King’s Son, for whom His bride hath made herself ready. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
