A Difference in Love

John Flavel points out the difference in degree between Christ’s love for us, and our love for him:

Did the love of Christ break through so many impediments to come to thee? Did it make its way through the law, through the wrath of God, through the grave, through thine own unbelief and great unworthiness, to come to thee? O what a love was the love of Christ to thy soul; And is not thy love strong enough to break through the vanities and trifles of this world, which intangle it, to go to Christ? How poor, how low and weak is thy love to Christ then? (Works of Flavel, I, p. 27).

    It is just as Paul the Apostle says, “. . . that you, being grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge . . . .”
