Christ is All!

"Christ is all!" Colossians 3:11
The Gospel is the revelation of Jesus Christ, as . . .
the manifester of God,
Savior of his people,
and the sufficient portion of all who believe on his name.
He possesses in himself, every conceivable excellence — and communicates to his people, every real good. He is exhibited to our view in a variety of characters — and pressed upon our attention by a variety of figures. Indeed, the Holy Spirit, in glorifying Jesus, has seized upon everything in nature calculated to . . .
enlighten the understanding,
impress the memory, and 
furnish the judgment — 
with right views, and just ideas of his excellence and glory. So that having Christ set before us in almost every object that presents itself to our view — we might have our meditations filled with him, and our faith exercised upon him. Being prone to forget him — the Spirit uses almost every object to remind us of him. Everywhere and by all things, we are instructed "in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ," and are reminded of his excellencies and suitability to poor sinners. We cannot take a walk — but a vast number of things conspire to remind us of Him, of whom Moses in the law and the Prophets wrote; and if our minds were spiritual — we would be constantly deriving "instruction" and "edification" from nature and art, in reference to him whom we love and adore.
I propose therefore that you should accompany me, and that we should take a short walk together, in order to notice just a few of the objects which speak unto us of Jesus, in the immediate vicinity of our homes.
Come Holy Spirit, shed your light,
The love of Christ reveal;
Unfold the Savior to our sight,
Let us your influence feel.
