What Is Your Estimate of Christ?

HERE is God’s estimate. He has called Him
“The Plant of Renown.” He counts Him
“My beloved, in whom My soul delighteth.” His estimate of His Blood is, that it is “precious,” and cleanseth from all sin. His estimate of His righteousness is, that there is no other righteousness like it: it is the “righteousness of God,” while it is “unto all men, and upon all them that believe.” His estimate, in a word, of Christ altogether, is such, that it is He whom He delights to honor, and it is He whom He will glorify. Do you agree with God, sinner? What think you of Christ?
“‘What think you of Christ?’ is the test
To try both your state and your scheme,
You cannot be right in the rest,
Unless you think rightly of Him.
“As Jesus appears in our view,
As He is beloved or not,
So God is disposed to you,
And mercy or wrath is your lot.”
