You Can't Overemphasize Christ's Love

A beautiful thought expressed by 18th Century Methodist leader, John Fletcher, in a letter to his friend,  Charles Wesley:

I have the impression that we can never have too much compassion for sinners, nor overemphasize for them the love of Jesus, when he himself became incarnate and declared redemption and salvation to tax gatherers and evildoers.  I have also the impression that faith shows itself gradually in many hearts, and that it is our task to nourish the weakest spark, the faintest signs.  What is your opinion?  (Reluctant Saint, Patrick Streiff, p. 82)

This is a truth the church needs to be reminded of...frequently.
