For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

Christ: Attractive Like No Other!

Octavius Winslow wrote:
And, as if to crown the encouragements accumulating around our access to Jesus, there are His own personal attraction — all-inviting and irresistible. Everything in the person of Jesus encourages our advance. Does glory charm us — does beauty attract us — does love win us — does gentleness subdue us — does sympathy soothe us — does faithfulness inspire confidence? — then, all this is in Jesus, and all invites us to draw near. He is the "altogether lovely," and if our minds can appreciate the grand, and our hearts are sensible of the tender; if they feel the power of that which is superlatively great and exquisitely lovely, then we shall need no persuasion to arise, and go and tell Jesus every emotion of our souls, and every circumstance of our history. Take all that is tender in love — all that is faithful in friendship — all that is wise in counsel — all that is longsuffering in patience, all that is balmy, soothing, and healing in the deepest sympathy — and its embodiment, its impersonation is — JESUS.
