“In loving us (which is the foundation of all grace to us, for love is the ground of all mercy, Eph. 2:4, and so of all benefits of salvation) he is the first. So it is said expressly, 1 John 4:19, ‘We love him because he first loved us,’ and not we him, ver. 10. And he is the last in loving also; ‘whom he loved he loved to the end,’ John 13:1; and we should not love him to the end, if he did not continue to love us to the end. Thus it is in the foundation of mercy.” –Thomas Goodwin “Works of…” Vol. 8 p. 39
Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
