“…it is only by the knowledge of the excellency of Christ’s Person that any know His sufficiency as a Mediator; for the latter depends upon, and arises from, the former. It is by seeing the excellency of Christ’s Person that the saints are made sensible of the preciousness of His blood, and it’s sufficiency to atone for sin…”
– Jonathan Edwards, The Religious Affections
This quote struck me; it is a powerful and discerning statement. John 1, Hebrews 1 and Colossians 1 spring to mind – passages that base their call to faith, repentance and sanctification upon the amazing glory of Christ. I think that as we think through our witness and our words, we need to dwell upon the greatness of Christ. The bible is clear; understanding the greatness of God is essential to a saving faith.
People will not be saved when they think little of Christ. Let us make much of our Lord.
