“The pearl of price, the Lord Jesus, is the quintessence of all good things. To give us Christ is more than if God had given us all the world.
He can make more worlds, but He has no more Christs to bestow.
He is such a golden mine that the angels cannot dig to the bottom (Ephesians 3:8).
From Christ we have justification, adoption, and coronation.
The sea of God’s mercy in giving us Christ should swallow up all our wants.”
–Thomas Watson, The Lord’s Prayer (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth Trust, 1662/1999), 206.
