Himself

THE following are the passages in the New Testament where the word Himself occurs with reference to the Lord Jesus. What a rich cluster of the fruit of the land do they present! “An exceeding and eternal weight of glory!” What bread to strengthen our hearts! What wine to cheer us! Let us mark also the beautiful variety of the appellations of our blessed Lord, embracing many of His choicest names connected with these verses in which Himself is mentioned. We have for instance Christ—Jesus—Christ Jesus—the man Christ Jesus—Jesus Christ—our Lord Jesus Christ—the Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ—the Great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. The Son—the Son of God—the Lord—the Lord of Peace. May the Lord give us a relish for the sincere milk of His word; and thus lead us to Himself!
