Richard Baxter — Is it a small thing in your eyes to be loved by God…

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, buffered, spat upon, crucified, pierced- which fasted, prayed, taught, healed, wept, sweated, bled, died.  That love will eternally embrace you.
Richard Baxter
