Unlikely Love

The more unlikely it is
that He could love us,
the more His love is commended.
The less we could do,
the more He did for us.

This is Grace

water-cascade-1024x1024-wallpaper-1129-copyGrace is more than mercy and love. It super-adds to them. It denotes, not simply love, but the love of a sovereign, transcendent Superior. One that may do what He will. That may wholly choose whether He will love or no. Now God, who is an infinite Sovereign, who might have chosen whether ever He would love us or no; for Him to love us, this is Grace.

Heaven could not hold Him

It is as if Jesus had said: ‘The truth is, I cannot live without you. I shall never be quiet till I have you where I am, that we may never part again. Heaven shall not hold me, nor my Father’s company, if you are not with me – my heart is so set upon you. And if I have any glory, you shall be part of it too.”

–Thomas Goodwin (1600 – 1680)

The treasure

Christ’s riches are unsearchable,
and this doctrine of the gospel
is the field this treasure is hidden in.

–Thomas Goodwin (1600 – 1680)
