Puritan Thought on the Life of Christ

Jesus Christ is tender without being weak, strong without being coarse, lowly without being servile. He has conviction without intolerance, enthusiasm without fanaticism, holiness without Pharisaism, passion without prejudice. This man alone never made a false step, never struck a jarring note. His life alone moved on those high levels where local limitations are transcended and the absolute Law of Moral Beauty prevails. It was life at its Highest. – Thomas Watson

One thought on “Puritan Thought on the Life of Christ

  1. As I read this beautiful thought from Thomas Watson these verses came to my mind:
    Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: (Philippians 2:5 KJV)That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. (Philippians 3:10, 11 KJV)

    To be like our blessed Lord should be the passion of every believer as it was of Paul.
    This seemed to be the driving passion of many of our beloved Puritan brothers.
