Jesus is so wonderful!! Read this excerpt from "Jesus the Darling of Heaven" by Kathy Walters which leaves us with no other alternative than to worship Him!
"He is our Shield, our Defender, our Rock; our Hiding Place. He saves us and keeps by His power, from sin and death.
"He is our Provider, Counselor, Great Shepherd—our Friend.
"He is closer than a brother—our love. He is the Husbandman; the Keeper of the vineyard. He is the Source of all blessing. He restores, rescues, forgives and redeems. He is our Victor, the Captain of Hosts, He is our Banner, and our Standard. Mighty in battle, He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus is crowned with glory and honor, He is our Savior, Sanctifier, Redeemer; merciful and faithful High Priest. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. He was dead, but now He is ALIVE forevermore and He is seated at the right hand of God (seated—it's finished).
"He destroyed death, and led captivity captive. He is the great Apostle of our faith, He is the supreme Sacrifice, the spotless and blameless Lamb. He is our Anchor, our Strong Tower, our Shield, our Defender, and He was the Ancient of Days before the first day began. He is the Door, the Way and the Truth. He is the Treasure, the Pearl of great price; more precious than the finest gold. He was the Rock of Ages before any mountain peaks were formed. He was the Bread of Life, before there was any grain. He was the Lily of the Valley, before there were any flowers on the earth. He makes His enemies His footstools and laughs at His adversaries.
"He came from eternal glory to the depths of humiliation. He abdicated Heaven's throne for a pile of straw in a manger. He sacrificed infinite riches to embrace poverty—to break its power. He bade farewell to Heaven's love to receive men's hatred and shame. He surrendered Heaven's adoration to suffer scorn, and He turned from celestial bliss and life with Cherubim and Seraphim, to die between two thieves on a Cross.
"He is the Tree of Life. He is consecrated forever and makes us sanctified forever, by His precious Blood. He is the Minister of the Sanctuary, He is the Mediator of the New Covenant. He is the High Priest of GOOD THINGS to come, He's the Lion of Judah, and the Lamb who was slain. He is the New and Living Way. Jesus is the Darling of Heaven. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
"He is qualified to open the Book. He is the expression of the heart of the Father. His love has no limits; His grace has no measure. His power has no boundaries known unto men, out of His infinite riches, He gives and gives and gives again. He is the Lily of the Valley the Bright and Morning Star—the fairest of 10,000. He is more precious than gold. He's the Glory and Lifter of our Heads. He is the Righteous Judge. He is a Refuge for the oppressed. He doesn't forget the cry of the humble. He bore our sorrows and our grief. He was despised and rejected of men and now He controls the destiny of the nations.
"The kingdoms of this world are going to become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and forever. He is our Portion and our Inheritance, His garments smell of sweet myrrh and His breath is as sweet apples. He hides us under the shadow of His wings, and keeps us as the apple of His eye. He is our High Tower. He makes the hills shake, the mountains melt and the heavens bow.
"He pulled back the curtain of eternity and stepped out on the stage of time for one brief moment, and then stepped back again into eternity, but in that one bridge moment of time, He sealed the fate of every man and fixed the destiny of every man and woman. He will light my candle, because He is the Light of Life. He is the Branch, and the Root of Jesse.
"He makes the crooked paths straight and the rough places plain. He split history and divided the ages.
"He preserves the faithful; He is the Resurrection and Life. He spoke and framed the world. He makes our way perfect and makes our feet like hinds feet. He causes us to walk in high places.
"He is Hearing to the deaf and Sight to the blind. He is Cleansing to the leper and Strength to the weak. He is Comfort to the oppressed, Hope to the hopeless and Help to the helpless. He is a Brother to the friendless and a Friend to the brotherless, and He is LIFE to the dead. He is infinite, eternal, glorious and full of majesty. He is the Covenant Keeper; keeping covenant with covenant breakers. He is sweeter than all the flowers. He is the lover of our soul and the keeper of our hearts. He is Music to the poet, and Song to the worshiper.
"His name has been whispered by thousands upon thousands of dying soldiers on the battlefields of the ages. His name has been the battle cry of those who fought for righteousness and truth. He is the King of all kings and all rulers and every nation will bow to Him. His name is Jesus!"
