Martin Bucer wrote these passionate words about the great satisfaction that is to be found in the Lord Jesus Christ alone:
" . . . Christ our Lord alone is the One who is, gives, and performs for us everything which we can desire for our true advantage, happiness, and honour."
" . . . all gain, all enjoyment, all honour apart from Christ is poison and death, but . . . in Christ all loss is true and eternal gain, joy, and honour . . . ."
" . . . through the holy gospel of Christ people are well instructed and reminded to seek everything in Christ our Lord alone and be satisfied with all things in Him."
" . . . we have all our joy, comfort, and confidence in Him, Christ our Lord."
"If we really love Christ, He is everything to us . . . ."
