Our Love For Christ – Robert Traill

Miserable souls are they who love not Christ; and dull unobservant people are they that know not what, or whom their souls love.  Is the love of Christ a mere notion?  Is it not a most sensible, holy and spiritual passion, or rather a heavenly grace?  Can men love Christ and not feel it?  Should they feel it and not avow it?  Is there anything we should be ashamed of in the love for Christ, but the shameful smallness of it?  – Robert Traill, “Sermons concerning the Throne of Grace,” in The Works of Robert Traill, Vol.1, 108
