Nothing Compares with Christ

O fair sun and fair moon; fair stars and fair flowers and fair roses; fair lilies, and fair creatures. But ten thousand thousand times fairer LORD Jesus. Alas! I have wronged Him in making the comparison this way. Oh dark sun and moon, but O fair LORD Jesus. O dark stars, flowers, and roses. But O fair, fair, even fair LORD Jesus. All things, dark, deformed, and without beauty, when they are set beside the fairest LORD Jesus. O dark heaven, but fair O Christ. O dark angels, but surpassingly fair LORD Jesus.

—John Flavel

“Preach Christ in such a way that God’s people will be more dissatisfied with every alternative.” —Paul Washer
