Brotherly love we would define as that gracious bond that knits together the hearts of God’s children. More definitely, it is that spiritual and affectionate solicitude1 that Christians have toward each other, manifested by a desiring and endeavoring after their highest mutual interests…2

Viewed with the eye of man, the earth contains many different sorts of inhabitants. Viewed with the eye of God, it only contains two. Man’s eye looks at the outward appearance: this is all he thinks of. The eye of God looks at the heart: this is the only part of which He takes any account. And tried by the state of their hearts, there are but two classes into which people can be divided: either they are wheat or they are chaff.

Short and sweet, this 26th letter of Newton’s 41 on religious subjects responds to a likeminded brother, reveling in their mutual determination to know Christ better. Modern readers with the same godly desire will receive the most comfort from it.

The Day of Judgment will also be a day of great surprise, both to saints and sinners. So Christ expressly informs us: “Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?” (Mat 25:37-39).
Many of you, I do not doubt, have heard the story of Arch-bishop Usher1 and Mr. Rutherford;2 but it is so appropriate to this subject that I cannot help telling it again. The archbishop had heard of the wondrous power of Rutherford’s devotion and of the singular beauty of the arrangement of his household, and he wished to witness it himself; but he could not tell how to do so until it occurred to him that he might disguise himself as a poor traveler.
