1. The Beauty and Glory of God
It is with great joy that we begin this series of messages on the subject, Christ is Lord of All.
In meditating on this blessed subject, my heart has been greatly blessed with the Person of Christ as I have seen Him in His beauty and glory as the eternal Son of God, God, very God. I have seen Him in His condescension as the Son of Man and in His unique position as the God-Man, the One Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus. Also I have seen Him in His beauty and glory as the One in whom two natures dwell, the nature of God and the nature of man, but with just one personality, that of God Himself because He is God. It is this glorious Person that we desire to speak of in these messages, showing that He is Lord of all.
In Philippians 2:5-12 we read these precious words: “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but make himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
