Christ Precious to those who Believe

The preciousness of Jesus Christ, to those who believe—practically considered and improved

 

Christ Precious to those who Believe written in 1799 by John Fawcett is a “minor spiritual classic of the eighteenth century that deserves to be better known. In it, Fawcett explores the way that ‘love is the parent and promoter of every thing excellent and amiable in the Christian character,’ a love that is, first and foremost, a love for the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

The subject to which the reader’s attention is invited in these pages is of the highest importance; since love to the divine Redeemer is the distinguishing characteristic of a real Christian, and most indispensably requirement in order to our serving God acceptably in this world, and to our dwelling with him in the next world. Without a sincere and loving attachment to the Author of eternal salvation, whatever works of morality we may perform, our obedience will be materially and essentially defective, as not flowing from a proper principle. Love is the parent and promoter of everything excellent and amiable in the Christian character. It diffuses itself through the whole train of holy actions. It gives them all their motion, and dignifies them with all their real value. The eloquence of men, or even of angels, the gift of prophecy, the knowledge of all mysteries, the power to work miracles, the most extensive liberality to the poor, and even the suffering of martyrdom, are all insignificant and unprofitable without love to Jesus.

 

“…explores the way that ‘love is the parent and promoter of every thing excellent and amiable in the Christian character,’ a love that is, first and foremost, a love for the Lord Jesus Christ”
