There has never been a man like the Lord Jesus. How holy, how pure, how sinless is the Lord Jesus Christ.
John Phillips wrote some words about Jesus that deeply stirred me. He said,
“His life was perfectly holy. He never looked with lust. He never uttered a hasty, unkind, untrue or frivolous word. He never entertained an impure thought. He was never accused by conscience. Never inflamed by wrongful passion. Never out of step with the will of God. His time was never wasted. His talents never debased for selfish ends. His influence, never bad. His judgment, never wrong. He never had to apologize for anything He did or retract a single word He said. He was never too late or too soon, never upset, never insipid, never shallow or afraid. From the summit of the Mount of Transfiguration He could have stepped straight into glory. He had absolute victory from the moment He drew his first breath in that Bethlehem barn until the moment He closed His eyes in death on the cross of Calvary.”
If you’re looking for a hero, let me suggest mine to you. If you don’t have one, His name is Jesus.
Revelation 19:16 says, “And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
