Samuel Rutherford

Here’s the complete quote from something I read this morning at Antioch that someone asked me to post.  It is from the Puritan Samuel Rutherford whose letters from prison were collected and published after his death.

It is in a manner as natural to us to leap when we see the New Jerusalem as to laugh when we’re tickled.  Joy is not under command, or at our nod, when Christ kisseth.  But oh! how many of us would have Christ divided into two halves, that we might take the half of him only!  We take his office, Jesus and salvation: but ‘Lord’ is a cumbersome word; and to obey, and work out our own salvation, and to perfect holiness, is the cumbersome and stormy northside of Christ; and that we eschew and shift.
