Sibbes on no competition for Christ

Another quote from Richard Sibbes (via Mike Reeves):

Sibbes: What will come of it if Christ be set in the highest place in our heart? … When the soul is rightly possessed of Christ and of his excellency, it disdains that anything should come in competition with him.
