A View of Christ

“Once …in 1737… I had a view, that for me was extraordinary, of the glory of the Son of God, as Mediator between God and man, and his wonderful, great, full, pure and sweet grace and love, and meek and gentle condescension…. The person of Christ appeared ineffably excellent, with an excellency great enough to swallow up all thought and conception… which kept me the greater part of the time in a flood of tears, weeping aloud. I felt an ardency of soul to be, what I know not otherwise how to express, emptied and annihilated; to lie in the dust, and to be full of Christ alone; to love him with a holy and pure love; to trust in him; and to be perfectly sanctified and made pure, with a divine and heavenly purity.”  -Jonathan Edwards (taken from “Why We’re Not Emergent” by Kevin DeYoung)
