An old Puritan author by the name of Thomas Goodwin (1600–1680) wrote a book with a beautiful title: The Heart of Christ in Heaven Towards Sinners on Earth. His purpose and goal was to warm his readers hearts by speaking to them about the heart of Christ in heaven towards sinners on earth. We, the sinners, should never be afraid to go to Christ because he has a heart for us and loves us dearly. Jesus described himself as Gentle and Lowly (Matthew 11:29). He is the one who knelt down and washed his disciples feet (John 13). He is our advocate in heaven who always lives to intercede for us (Hebrews 7:25).
Dane Ortlund has picked up on this often neglected and heart warming truth about Christ and has written a new book called Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers. He has also released a 14-Day Devotional, which is completely free! Check out the first video here:
