>Embraced by Love

Ever feel like Alexander in the horrible, terrible, no good day? Are you human enough to get “down” occasionally? Here’s a timely reminder from a Puritan author:

Is it a small thing in your eyes to be loved by God – to be the son, the
spouse, the love, the delight of the King of glory? Christian, believe
this, and think about it: you will be eternally embraced in the arms of
the love which was from everlasting, and will extend to everlasting – of
the love which brought the Son of God’s love from heaven to earth, from
earth to the cross, from the cross to the grave, from the grave to glory
– that love which was weary, hungry, tempted, scorned, scourged,
buffeted, spat upon, crucified, pierced – which fasted, prayed, taught,
healed, wept, sweated, bled, died. That love will eternally embrace you.

Richard Baxter
