Consider the Works of Our God

This is another excerpt from John Bunyan's 'All Loves Excelling'. Here, Bunyan is writing on Ephesians 3:17-19 and encouraging us to think the degree to which God has loved us.

"This calls therefore upon Christians, wisely to consider the doings of their God. How many opposite breadths, and lengths, and depths, and heights did Israel meet with in their journey from Egypt to Canaan, and all to convince them of their own weakness, and also of the power of their God. And they that did wisely consider of his doings there, did reap the advantage thereof. Come, behold the works of the Lord towards me, may every Christian say:

He hath set a Savior against sin; a heaven against a hell; light against darkness; good against evil; and the breadth, and length, and depth, and height of the grace that is in himself, for my good, against all the power, and strength, and force, and subtlety, of every enemy."

John Bunyan, All Loves Excelling (1998), pg. 25.
