The first effect - John Owen

The first effect of a true love for Christ is our clinging to him. The believer's soul is knit to Christ's soul as David's was to Jonathan's (1 Sam. 18:1). Love produces a firm clinging to Christ crucified that makes a soul in some sense always present with Christ on the cross.
