Miscellanies 22 - Encourage yourself with the Love of God in the Morning

The Love of God is the sweetest of all Loves and the most comforting and assuring. My fellow creatures if you awake with the thought that no one loves you, that no one cares then consider this: Did God not send His Son to die for you in Love? Yes He did. He loves you, Him and His Son and the Holy Spirit. That's three persons who loves you and that unconditionally. The world did not love my saviour and He was at peace, the world rejected Paul and he was content - much less does this world hate you. Rejoice your heart in the magnitude of God's love for you - give no way to flickering doubt, shut your door to the whispering accusations of the devil, take your cup and fill it up in the fountain of his love. oh poor soul, my very dear friend, this morning as it has always been in His mind from all eternity, He loves you. He rejoices over you and tells of your name before His angels. It was for you his Son left his jewelled crown to pick up a thorny one instead. He had you in mind. Do away with your misery that no one loves you - God loves you and what is the Love of all mankind compared to God's. It is as a dust, like a grain of sand viewed from the outskirts of the universe. It is nothing. Man's love could not save your soul but his did. Man's love could not last for all eternity but his does.

and sinner, you, not yet to find God and know nothing of this sweetness and myrrh; I call you this morning to come. To take a look and survey his wondrous cross. To look upon the greatest display of love imaginable and to ponder, what is this and what does it mean, who is it for. It is for you sinner, for him who stands nailed to his cross once said, 'I came to rescue sinners, I give my life has a ransom for them'. It is his sacrifice to bring you into His Love and His Father's. He calls you right now in this hour to be a partaker of this relationship, of his sweet melody. Oh how can you refuse, is your heart not moved, who can fail to smell the aroma of a sweet perfume. Oh come and dip your hand in his blood. Bow your head, bend your knee and say Jesus I am a sinner, I believe you died for me and now I have your life to live, your love to know, your power to will. I give my life to you, i too will carry my cross and walk the path of saints till at last I see you face to face. Oh come and tarry no longer, precious is the day today and what a fountain of blessing will be your loss if you should resign and delay yet another day. 

Oh saints use each day to enjoy the sunshine of His love - remove every cloud, shield every rain with the umbrella of his love and know in your hearts of hearts that God your heavenly Father, His Son your Saviour and His Spirit since all eternity and for all eternity loves you.
