Napoleon said of Jesus Christ …

Salvation and power are established! Kingdom of our God, authority of his Messiah! The Accuser of our brothers and sisters thrown out, who accused them day and night before God. They defeated him through the blood of the Lamb and the bold word of their witness. They weren’t in love with themselves; they were willing to die for Christ. So rejoice, O Heavens, and all who live  here, but doom to earth and sea, For the Devil’s come down on you with both feet; he’s had a great fall; He’s wild and raging with anger; he hasn’t much time and he knows it.  Revelation 5:12 (The Message)

The childish idea that because God is great He can do anything, good or bad, right or wrong and we must say nothing is erroneous!

The meaning of moral worth is that certain things are impossible to it: it is impossible for God to lie; it is impossible for Jesus Christ to contradict His own holiness or to become other than He is.

The profound truth for us is that Jesus Christ is the worthy one not because He was God incarnate, but because He was God incarnate on the human plane!

“Coming in the likeness of men” He accepted our limitations and lived on this earth a life of perfect holiness.

Napoleon said of Jesus Christ that He had succeeded in making of every human soul an appendage of His own – why? Because He had the genius of holiness!

There have been great military geniuses, intellectual giants, geniuses of politics, but these only exercise influence over a limited number of people; Jesus Christ exercises unlimited sway over humanity because He is the altogether worthy one!

Oswald Chambers
