One of the most powerful statements anyone has made about Jesus Christ is Dr. S.M. Lockridge, which he says of Jesus:
“He’s the sinner’s savior. He’s the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He’s unique. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He’s supreme. He’s preeminent. He’s the loftiest idea in literature…. the highest concept in philosophy… the fundamental truth in theology… the cardinal necessity of religion.
“He’s the miracle of the age. He supplies strength for the weak. He’s available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He guards and He guides. He heals the sick, He cleans the lepers, He forgives sinners, He discharges debtors, He delivers captives, He defends the feeble, He blesses the young, He serves the unfortunate, He regards the aged, He rewards the diligent, He beautifies the meek. Do you know Him? He’s my king!”
He’s “the king of knowledge… the well-spring of wisdom… the doorway of deliverance… the pathway of peace, He’s the roadway of righteousness… the highway of holiness… the gateway of glory… the master of the mighty… the captain of the conquerors… the head of the heroes… the leader of the legislators… the overseer of the overcomers, He’s the governor of governors, He’s the prince of princes, He’s the King of kings and the Lord of Lords. Do you know Him?”
“His life is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. His yoke is easy and His burden is light.”
Dr. Lockridge continues to say, “I’m trying to describe Him to you, but the problem is, He’s indescribable. He’s irresistible. He’s incomprehensible. He’s invincible. The Pharisees hated Him. The Jews rejected Him. Pilate condemned Him. The Romans crucified Him. Our sins killed Him. The rich man buried Him. But the grave could not hold Him. And death could not handle Him. And He rose triumphant on the third day, and He ascended into Heaven, and He sits enthroned at the right hand of God the Father. He is the Lord of Heaven, the Lord of the Church, the Lord of our lives. He is our High Priest in Heaven. He is our coming King. That’s who Jesus is. Do you know Him? Is He your king? Is He your Lord?”
