Sunday Meditation – Incomparable in Excellency

“O, pity for evermore that there should be such a one as Christ Jesus, so boundless, so bottomless, and so incomparable in infinite excellency and sweetness, and so few to take Him.

O, ye poor dry and dead souls, why will ye not come hither with your empty vessels, and your empty souls to this huge, and fair, and deep, and sweet well of life and fill all your empty vessels.

O, that Christ should be so large in sweetness and worth, and we so narrow, pinched, so ebb, and so void of all happiness, and yet men will not take Him. They lose their love miserably, who will not bestow it upon this lovely One.”

Samuel Rutherford
