Thomas Goodwin aims to show from Scripture that, in all His heavenly majesty, Christ is not now aloof from believers and unconcerned, but has the strongest affections for them.  Goodwin begins with the beautiful assurances given by Christ to his disciples, taking as an example of that love Christ's washing of his disciples feet (John 13).  The heart of his argument, however, lies in his exposition of Hebrews 4:15, in which Goodwin shows that in all his glorious holiness in heaven, Christ is not sour towards his people; if anything, his capacious heart beats more strongly than ever with tender love for them. And in particular, two things stir his compassion: our afflictions and -- almost unbelievably --  our sins.
