Yearning After Christ

I just read this from Samuel Rutherford and it resounded with me. A good consideration to prepare one for the Lord’s Day.

“I am in as sweet communion with Christ as a poor sinner can be; and am only pained that He hath much beauty and fairness, and I little love; He great power and mercy, and I little faith; He much light, and I bleared eyes. Oh, that I saw Him in the sweettness of His love, and i His marriage-clothes, and were over head and ears in love with that princely one, Christ Jesus my Lord! Alas, my riven dish and the running-out vessel can hold little of Christ Jesus!”

Rutherford, The Letters of Samuel Rutherford, 197.
