Frequent Thoughts of Jesus Christ

"Generally Christ is nigh unto believers, and of a ready access; and the principal actings of the life of faith consist in the frequency of our thoughts concerning him; for hereby ‘Christ liveth’ in us, as he is said to do. Galatians 2:20. This we cannot do, unless we have frequent thoughts on him, and converse with him. It is often said among men that one lives in another. This cannot be but where the affections of one are so engaged unto another that night and day he thinks of him, and is thereby, as it were, present with him. So ought it to be between Christ and believers. He dwells in them by faith; but the actings of this life in them (as, wherever life is, it will be in act and exercise) are proportionable unto their thoughts of him, and delight in him."
