In giving Christ to die for poor sinners, God gave the richest jewel in His cabinet, a mercy of the greatest worth and most inestimable value.  Heaven itself is not so valuable and precious to us as Christ is!  Ten thousand thousand worlds – as many worlds as angels can number – would not outweigh Christ’s love, excellency, and sweetness!  O, what a lovely One!  What an excellent, beautiful, ravishing One – is Christ! – John Flavel (ca. 1627-1691)
