Optimum Maximum



(Thomas Brooks, "The Unsearchable Riches of Christ")

Christians serve a wonderful Master.
They serve Him who is . . .
     all ear to hear them,
     all hand to uphold them,
     all power to protect them,
     all wisdom to direct them,
     all goodness to relieve them,
     all mercy to pardon them.

They serve that God who is optimum maximum
the best and greatest. God has within Himself
all the good of angels, men, and universal nature.
God has . . .
     all dignity,
     all glory,
     all riches,
     all treasure,
     all pleasure,
     all delight,
     all joy,
     all beatitudes.

God is . . .
     goodness,
     beauty,
     power,
     wisdom,
     justice,
     mercy, and
     love itself!
God is one infinite perfection in Himself!

"He has allwho has the Haver of all." √Āugustine
