Love God truly, and you will easily love your neighbor; for you will see God’s image of him, or interest in him, and feel all his precepts and mercies obliging you hereunto. To this end let Christ be your continual study. He is the full revelation of the love of God; the lively pattern of love, and the best teacher of it that ever was in the world: his incarnation, life, and sufferings, his gospel and covenant, his intercession and preparations for our heavenly felicity, all are the great demonstrations of condescending, matchless love. Mark both: God’s love to us in him, and his love to man, and you will have the best directive and incentive of your love.—Richard Baxter (1615-1691)
