1 Corinthians 16:22

“Can you think of His lowly birth in utter poverty, all the toil and labor in His life, the pain and suffering of His death as He was made sin for us, the constancy of His intercession for us at the throne ever since – can you think of it all and not love Him ?

“Yes, we can, and it stamps upon our character such utter baseness, and it makes the language of our text speak to us with heavenly authority: ‘If any man love not the Lord Jesus, let him be accursed.’ When I think about it, I have it in my heart to say, ‘Amen, Lord. You couldn’t do anything else. Hell is no more than we deserve.'”

– Alan Redpath, from The Royal Route to Heaven: Studies in First Corinthians, p. 247
