Devotional: January 24th

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be a propitiation for our sins. We love him because he first loved us. 1 John 4:10; 1 John 4:19. He that loves me shall be loved of my Father and I will love him, and will manifest myself unto him. We will come unto him, and make our whole abode with him. John 14:21-23.

O what a glorious promise, what manner of love is this! Lord, I would not exchange my cross and sufferings, much less thy love, for the love and honours of the world. Only make it more known to me, how great thy love is, and how much thou hast forgiven me, that I may love thee much again, and be thereby still better purged from the inordinate love of temporal things. It is my earnest desire that the gates of my heart, should be open to none but to thee, that thou alone may dwell in me. Shed thy love abroad in my heart, quicken and renew all the faculties of mind and body, and work every thing in and for me.

O! for this love, let rocks and hills,
Their lasting silence break,
And all harmonious human tongues
The Saviour’s praises speak.

Yes, we will praise thee, dearest Lord,
Our souls are all on flame;
Hosanna round the spacious earth
To thine adored name.

Angels, assist our mighty joys,
Strike all your harps of gold,
But when you raise your highest notes,
His love can never be told.
