Supping with the Puritans – Marrow and fatness shared with ‘the prince of letter writers’

Isaiah 33:17


17 Thine eyes shall see the King in his glory: they shall behold the land far off.


“Put the beauty of ten thousand worlds of paradises, like the Garden of Eden in one; put all trees, all flowers, all smells, all colors, all tastes, all joys, all loveliness, all sweetness in one. O what a fair and excellent thing would that be? And yet it would be less to that fair and dearest well-beloved Christ than one drop of rain to the whole seas, rivers, lakes, and foundations of ten thousand earths.”


Samuel Rutherford

Not having been written by the finger of God, the inscription on Samuel’s gravestone is fading. The Lord now writes on tablets of human hearts.
