365 days with Newton


The God-Man … all in all

‘And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.’ Isaiah 32:2

Nothing raises the wonder and disgust of the world more than the high regard believers pay to the Lord Jesus. If they would only speak seriously of God, his goodness and providence, they might be borne with—but so much of Christ is offensive. Those who know him, however, will never think they can say enough of him, and they have good reasons the others cannot understand them: what he is in himself and what he is and will be to them. With regard to the latter we have a comprehensive description in this verse, which speaks at once the dangers and difficulties in the believer’s path, and the security he enjoys in the Redeemer. The person to whom these great and gracious properties are applied is called a man—and this is our comfort that our Redeemer is our ‘Goel’, our near kinsman—he took upon him our flesh and blood and was made man. But was he not more than man, who could venture upon him for these great purposes? We may read it the Man—here we may be sure it means the God-Man—the Man that is God’s fellow—the Word who was made flesh—and who in the nature wherein he suffered, now reigns over heaven and earth. You that are desirous to escape this evil world, see what lies before you—here is winds and floods, a barren wilderness and a burning sun. Be prepared, but be not discouraged, for here is a hiding place where you shall be safe. Here is a river of life to cheer you when all within and without is dry. And here is a shadow through which the heat cannot pierce to hurt. In a word—if you seek Jesus you will find him all in all.
FOR MEDITATION: [preached from on Sunday evening, 26 February 1775]
He who on earth as man was known,
His righteousness, to faith revealed,
And bore our sins and pains;
Wrought out for guilty worms,
Now, seated on the eternal throne,
Affords a hiding place and shield,
The GOD of glory reigns.
From enemies and storms.
