“Can Christ Love One Like Me?”

“We feel we are such crawling reptiles, such undeserving
creatures and are so utterly unworthy of the least notice
from our Lord, that we say, ‘Can Christ love one like me?’
Can the glorious Son of God cast an eye of pity and
compassion, love and tenderness upon one like me, who
can scarcely at times bear with myself, who sees and
feels myself one of the vilest of the vile, and the worst
of the worst? O, what must I be in the sight of the
glorious Son of God?”

“And yet, He says, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting
love.’ His love has breadths, and lengths, and depths,
and heights unknown!”

By J. C. Philpot, “Christ Dwelling in the Heart by Faith,” www.gracegems.org/04/Christ_love.html
