Noble Portion

“My counsel is, that ye come out and leave the multitude, and let Christ have your company. Let them take clay and this present world who love it: Christ is a more worthy and noble portion: blessed are those who get Him.”

Samuel Rutherford, The Loveliness of Christ

  1. Hi Lindsey,
    Clay is a reference to man. So Rutherford is saying that the multitude loves this present world and their fellow man above Christ. Jesus said we were to leave it all behind to follow Him. The irony of choosing fallen man and the fallen world over Christ, is that when God remakes it all, those who have loved Christ above all else, will have the world too.
