Excerpt from Looking Unto Jesus: A View of the Everlasting Gospel, or the Soul's Eyeing of Jesus, as Carrying on the Great Work of Man's Salvation, From First to Last
The most excellent subject to' discourse or write of, -is jesus christ. Augustine, having read Cicero' s works, commended'them for their eloquence; but he passed this sentence upon them, They are not sweet, because the name of Jesusis not in them. And Bernard's saying is near the same, If thou writest, it doth not relish with me, unless I read Jesus there; if thou disputest or conferrest, it doth not relish well with me, unless Jesus sound there. Indeed all we say is but unsavory, if it be not seasoned with this salt, I determined not to know any thing among you, (saith Paul, ) save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. He resolved with' him self, before he preached among the Corinthians, that this should be the Only point Of knowledge, that he would profess'himself to'have skill in; and that, in the course of his ministry he would labor to bring them to: this he made the breadth, and length, and depth, and'height of his know ledge yea, doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge, of Christ Jesus my Lord. Eph. 3 18. Phil. 3 58.
