“Whom have I in heaven but you, [oh Lord]? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Psalm 73:25–26).
Christians are often quick to speak of Christ as good, gracious, kind, or loving. Christ Jesus is most certainly these things, but the Bible speaks of Him as the highest expression of them. Christian maturity is a progressive result of seeing Christ as most glorious, and thus most desirable.
The word “glorious” means worthy of admiration, having striking beauty or splendor, and magnificence that evokes feelings of adoration. Christ is supremely worthy of our admiration; He is beautiful and splendid beyond compare; and His magnificence does indeed rouse our hearts and minds to worship!
For centuries, Christians have gazed upon the wonderful Savior and found Him to be the most glorious Christ. May we behold Him, worship Him, and enjoy Him above all else.
