Time for a Great Quote: Thomas Watson on Heavenly Affections

29 Jun

Thomas Watson says, “The reason our affections are so cold to heavenly things is because we do not warm them at the fire of holy meditation. As the musing on amorous objects makes the fire of lust burn; the musing on injuries makes the fire of revenge burn; so meditating on the transcendent beauties of Christ, would make our love to Christ flame forth.” Watson, The Christian Soldier, part 4.
