“I must have the Savior indeed, for he is my All. All that others have in the world and in religion and in themselves I have in thee — pleasures, riches, safety, honor, life, righteousness, holiness, wisdom, bliss, joy, gaiety and happiness . . . . If a child longs for his father, a traveler for the end of his journey, a workman to finish his work, a prisoner for liberty, an heir for the full possession of his estate, so in all these respects I cannot help longing to go home.”
Howell Harris, quoted in D. M. Lloyd-Jones, The Puritans (Edinburgh, 1987), p. 300, as blogged by Ray Ortlund at the Gospel Coalition.
