To Ponder

bible1Jesus is the one great theme both of the Old Testament and the New. The whole Bible is designed to testify of Christ, “The Scriptures point to Me!” John 5:39. In Christ the Messiah, in Jesus the Savior, in the Son of God the Redeemer–all the truths of the Bible center. To Him all the types and shadows point! Of Him all the prophecies give witness! All the glory of the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation–culminates at the cross of Christ! The Bible would be an inexplicable mystery apart from Christ, who unfolds and explains it all. He is the golden Key which unlocks the divine treasury of Scriptural revelation! Until He is seen, the Bible is, in a sense–a great mystery. But when He is found, it is a glorious revelation. Every mystery is opened,  every enigma is explained, every discrepancy is harmonized, and every truth and page, sentence and word–is quickened with a life and glowing with a light flowing down from the throne of the Eternal God. Christ is the substance of the Gospel. All its divine doctrines, all its holy precepts, all its gracious instructions, all its precious promises, all its glorious hopes-sweet, center, and fill up their entire compass in Jesus! He is the Alpha and the Omega of the Bible–from the first verse in Genesis, to the last verse in Revelation. (Octavius Winslow)
