All things that the Father hath are mine

HERE is an indirect proof of the Divinity of Jesns; for if he claims and possesses all that the Father hath, he must be God. But all things that the Father hath, belong to Jesus; that Jesus in whom we trust, to whom we are united, and with whom we shall live for ever. Jesus possesses the Divine nature equally with the Father, and is God over all, blessed for evermore. He claims all the Divine attributes and perfections; and they are all ascribed to him in the Holy Scriptures. He wears all the Divine names, and shares in the honour of all the Divine works. His are all the boundless resources of the universe. As all things were created by him, so also they were created for him. All power is given unto him in heaven and in earth; therefore we may look to him for all we need, flee to him from all we fear, and trust him with all we value. Let us this day exercise our minds on this glorious fact. Precious Lord Jesus, help me to rejoice in thee, expect from thee, and labour by all means to glorify thee !

Jesus, is there not in thee,
Grace, sufficient grace for me ?
Let me now, with thee, receive
All thou dost to sinners give:
All thou hast, and know thou art,
for ever in my heart!
