'Because it is sin rather than human nature that is opposed to grace, the study of Christ's emotions trains us to understand what it means to be properly human. In the process, we, as Spirit-filled Christians see how our emotions, which are God's gifts to us, should be expressed in the various circumstances we encounter...
...He knew when to laugh, and he knew when to weep. He knew when to stay silent and when to speak. As we consider his emotional life, we are at the same time learning how to be properly emotional Christians. After all, one of the problems in the church today is not that we are too emotionally driven, but that we are not sufficiently such after the pattern of Christ.' 
Mark Jones, Knowing Christ, p.69.
