William Pinke, A.M. (1599–1629) was a learned puritan divine as well as an excellent classical scholar and linguist, and powerful Reformed preacher. He died in February 1629, before the promise of his abilities was fulfilled, at a young age.

This work was Pinke’s most popular and well-received treatise on the sincere love of the true Christian to Jesus Christ. He works from three texts, “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema maranatha,” (1 Corinthians 16:22). “Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity,” (Ephesians 6:24). And, “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple,” (Luke 14:26). He covers loving the Lord Jesus Christ at his coming, what a true Christian is, having a sincere love to Christ, and our highest love to Christ.

Do you love the Lord Jesus in sincerity? How do you know? And what ought that to look like in your life? What does the bible say about this? And could you explain such a love to someone who is inquiring about this in your life?
