Our Saviors Love

Staff Member
"The kindness and love of God our Saviour."—Titus 3:4.

How sweet it is to behold the Saviour communing with His own beloved people! There can be nothing more delightful than, by the Divine Spirit, to be led into this fertile field of delight. Let the mind for an instant consider the history of the Redeemer's love, and a thousand enchanting acts of affection will suggest themselves, all of which have had for their design the weaving of the heart into Christ, and the intertwisting of the thoughts and emotions of the renewed soul with the mind of Jesus.

When we meditate upon this amazing love, and behold the all-glorious Kinsman of the Church endowing her with all His ancient wealth, our souls may well faint for joy. Who is he that can endure such a weight of love?

That partial sense of it which the Holy Spirit is sometimes pleased to afford, is more than the soul can contain; how transporting must be a complete view of it! When the soul shall have understanding to discern all the Saviour's gifts, wisdom wherewith to estimate them, and time in which to meditate upon them, such as the world to come will afford us, we shall then commune with Jesus in a nearer manner than at present.

But who can imagine the sweetness of such fellowship? It must be one of the things which have not entered into the heart of man, but which God hath prepared for them that love Him. Oh, to burst open the door of our Joseph's granaries, and see the plenty which He hath stored up for us! This will overwhelm us with love. By faith we see, as in a glass darkly, the reflected image of His unbounded treasures, but when we shall actually see the heavenly things themselves, with our own eyes, how deep will be the stream of fellowship in which our soul shall bathe itself! Till then our loudest sonnets shall be reserved for our loving benefactor, Jesus Christ our Lord, whose love to us is wonderful, passing the love of women.

Charles Spurgeon
'tis unlike anything we can do, but i understand one thing nic....as serpent was just to be looked at and Lord Jesus Christ healed anyone, there is always obedience as a condition,...that right?

Dear Brother @robaston
Oh, I do believe we do/receive a little bit of it now and again. Probably without realizing it. When worshiping, singing praise (Even if you're like me and sound like a fog horn.), just kneeling praying or thoughtfully sitting thinking on how awesome His creation/His Word. How closely our walk is with Him can make these and other as well. A part of knowing/feeling His abundant Love in our lives. So, if you consider these as "obedience" times I can totally agree. Sadly, some see obedience as being an anchor/weight. I guess it can be if you allow it to be, but I do not.

Hope all is going well with you brother.
In the love of Christ Jesus.
