Christian, think about this!

(Richard Baxter)

"Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us!" Ephesians 5:2

Is it a small thing in your eyes to be loved by God—to be the son, the spouse, the beloved, the delight of the King of glory?

Christian, think about this! 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, healed, wept, sweated, bled, died. That love will eternally embrace you!

"May you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is! May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully!" Ephesians 3:18-19
