All who think well of Christ - John Ryland D.D.

"All who think well of Christ, who would gladly take a  whole  Christ for their own (by a  whole  Christ, I mean Christ as King to rule over them, as well as Priest to atone for them) may and ought to be encouraged to believe him to be their own (1 Pet. 2:7; 1 Cor. 12:3; Matt. 5:6), without being set to get such or such a measure of legal repentance and fitness for Christ (as some talk) before they may come to Him; seeing Christ alone can give repentance, and the only good repentance is produced by a sense of His dying love (Acts. 5:31; Zech. 12:10; Ezek. 36:31, and 20:43, and 16:68)." -  John Ryland, D.D., 1771
