Goliath or God?
Unparalleled and unprecedented
This week we've learned how to wage war against Goliath, wherever and whomever he may be. Let's close with one of the most powerful statements of faith ever preached. Dr. S. M. Lockridge described the risen Christ in a way which thrills and encourages me every time I read it. Today, as you face your Goliath, make this God yours:
He is unparalleled and unprecedented; he is the centerpiece of civilization.
He is the superlative of all excellence; he is the sum of human greatness.
He is the source of divine grace.
His name is the only one able to save, and His blood the only power able to cleanse.
His ear is open to the sinner's call, his hand is quick to lift the fallen soul.
He is the eternal love of us all, every one, and you can trust him.
He supplies mercy for the struggling soul, and sustains the tempted and the tried.
He strengthens the weak and the weary; he guards and guides the wanderer.
He heals the sick and cleanses the leper.
He delivers the captive, defends the helpless, and binds up the broken-hearted.
He's for you—and you can trust him.
Jesus is the key to all knowledge, and the wellspring of wisdom.
He's the doorway of deliverance, and the pathway of peace.
He's the roadway of righteousness, and the highway of holiness.
He's the gateway to glory, and yes, you can trust him.
Jesus is enough—he's the all-sufficient King.
He's the King of the Jews, he's the King of Israel.
He's the King of Righteousness, and he's the King of the Ages.
He's the King of Heaven, and the King of glory.
He's the King of kings and he's the Lord of Lords.
And yes, you can trust Him.
There is no gauge to measure his limitless love.
There is no barrier to block his blessings outpoured.
He is enduringly strong, and he is entirely sincere.
He is ee's the King ternally steadfast, and he is immortally faithful.
He is imperially powerful and he is impartially merciful.
He is indescribable, incomprehensible, invincible, and irresistible.
You can't outlive him and you can't live without him.
The Pharisees couldn't stand him, but they found they couldn't stop him.
Pilate couldn't fault him, and Herod couldn't kill him.
Death couldn't conquer him, and the grave couldn't hold him.
He's the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last.
He's the God of the future and the God of the past.
He is for us—and we can trust him!
Now who's bigger—Goliath or God?
