Christ's love, my heart

Octavius Winslow is by far one of my favorite Puritan writers, His writings are very comforting and cross centered.

Here's a gem from "The Sympathy of Chirst";

“Bring your heart with its profoundest emptiness, its most startling discovery of sin, its lowest frame, its deepest sorrow, and sink it into the depths of the Saviour’s love… Christ’s love touching your hard heart, will dissolve it; touching your cold heart, will warm it; touching your sinful heart, will purify it; touching your sorrowful heart, will soothe it; touching your wandering heart, will draw it back to Jesus. Only bring your heart to Christ’s love.”
