Infinite Condescending Kindness


Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear:
Forget your people and your father’s house;
Then the King will desire your beauty.
Because He is your Lord, bow down to Him.

—Psalm 45:10–11


O admire, admire the rich and free grace, which hath brought you to this relation. Is not this an instance of the greatest of love, that you should be the spouse of the Lord Jesus Christ? You that had no beauty, you that had no comeliness, that was full of sin. That he should embrace such as you and I are; that we should be taken into the embrace of this Lord Jesus, O infinite condescending kindness! O amazing love! Reverence, reverence, I beseech you, this Lord Jesus Christ.

He is your Lord and you must reverence him, love and be faithful unto him, be subject to him and careful to please him in everything. Endeavour to keep up a daily communion with him. Look, long and prepare for Christ’s second appearance, when the nuptials between you shall be solemnized and you live with him in mansions of everlasting joys, where you shall love and live with this king of glory forever and ever.

—George Whitefield, “Christ the Best Husband; or, An Earnest Invitation to Young Women to Come and See Christ” in Lee Gatiss (Ed.), The Sermons of George Whitefield (Crossway, 2012), 1:121.
