The Infinite Christ & Eternal Glory

Every day we may see some new thing in Christ. His love hath neither brim nor bottom.

When we shall come home and enter to the possession of our Brother's fair kingdom, and when our heads shall find the weight of the eternal crown of glory, and when we shall look back to pains and sufferings; then shall we see life and sorrow to be less than one step or stride from prison to glory; and that our little inch of time - suffering is not worthy of our first night's welcome home to heaven.

- Samuel Rutherford, The Loveliness of Christ

Thanks for quotes like this. I am currently writing an essay on Rutherford and the way he pastorally deals with suffering. How we have much to learn from men like him.

Do you have Rutherford's The Loveliness of Christ?

It's worth having and reading over and over again.
