God’s Love

We Do See Jesus – Charles Spurgeon

We Do See Jesus – Charles Spurgeon

We have not seen Jesus raise the dead; we have not seen him cast out devils; we have not seen him use the winds and calm the waves; but we do see, with our mind’s eye, his spotless holiness, his boundless love, his superlative truth, his wondrous heavenliness; in a word, we have seen, and do see, his fullness of grace and truth; and we rejoice in the fact that the tabernacle government of God among men in Christ Jesus is attended with a more real glory than the mere brilliance of light and the glow of flame.

He Became a Curse For Us – Richard Sibbes

He Became a Curse For Us – Richard Sibbes

He became not only a man but a curse, a man of sorrows, for us. He was broken that we should not be broken; he was troubled, that we should not be desperately troubled; he became a curse, that we should not be accursed.

– Richard Sibbes –
from The Bruised Reed, 1630

Spirit-filled souls ablaze for God – Samuel Chadwick

Spirit-filled souls ablaze for God – Samuel Chadwick

Spirit-filled souls are ablaze for God. They love with a love that glows. They serve with a faith that kindles. They serve with a devotion that consumes. They hate sin with fierceness that burns. They rejoice with a joy that radiates. Love is perfected in the fire of God.

Movement in Your Love – Richard Rolle

Movement in Your Love – Richard Rolle

Lord Jesus, I ask Thee, give unto me movement in Thy love without measure; desire without limit; longing without order; burning without discretion. Truly the better the love of Thee is, the greedier it is; for neither by reason is it restrained, nor be dread thronged, nor by doom tempted.
