Psa. 45:2 You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
There was something different about the words Jesus spoke. Like the Psalm says, ‘grace is poured upon your lips’. It seems that people hung on his every word, His words were filled with life itself. Today, we have these same words in written form. The written word of God carries the exact same grace as the words that came from the mouth of Jesus when He was here on earth. It is this message of salvation that comes through faith that stops us in our tracks. The Christian never tires of that message because it is the very grace of God that is revealed in this awesome person, Jesus Christ. Here are some thoughts from Spurgeon’s ‘Treasury of David’ that describes this grace that flows like living water from His lips.
“Beauty and eloquence make a man majestic when they are united; they both dwell in perfection in the all fair, all eloquent Lord Jesus. Grace of person and grace of speech reach their highest point in him. Grace has in the most copious manner been poured upon Christ, for it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell, and now grace is in superabundance, poured forth from his lips to cheer and enrich his people. The testimony, the promises, the invitations, the consolations of our King pour forth from him in such volumes of meaning that we cannot but contrast those cataracts of grace with the speech of Moses which did but drop as the rain, and distill as the dew. Whoever in personal communion with the Well-beloved has listened to his voice will feel that “never man spake like this man.” Well did the bride say of him, “his lips are like lilies dropping sweet smelling myrrh.” One word from himself dissolved the heart of Saul of Tarsus, and turned him into an apostle, another word raised up John the Divine when fainting in the Isle of Patmos. Oftentimes a sentence from his lips has turned our own midnight into morning, our winter into spring.”
It is the Word of God that raises people who are dead in their sins into life. It is God’s Word that comforts our hearts in the darkest of days. It is this grace that pours from His lips that strengthens us to live godly in this dark and sinful world. Grace is still pouring from His lips. Open your Bible, it is there that you will hear His sweet voice.
