A Soul-Satisfying Spectacle

Octavius Winslow, The Ministry of Home (London: 1847), page 39:

The sight of Jesus is a soul-satisfying spectacle.

The penitent soul is satisfied, for it sees in Jesus a free pardon of sin.

The condemned soul is satisfied, for it receives in Jesus a free justification.

The believing soul is satisfied, for it discovers in Jesus a fountain of all grace.

The tried, tempted, sorrowful soul is satisfied, for it experiences in Jesus all consolation, sympathy and love.

O, what an all-satisfying Portion is Jesus!

He satisfies every holy desire, for He realizes it.

He satisfies every craving need, for He supplies it.

He satisfies every sore grief, for He soothes it.

He satisfies the deepest yearnings, the highest aspirations, the most sublime hopes of the renewed soul, for all these center and end in Him!”
