CH Spurgeon_________February 4.

February 4-Morning {Daily Reading: #Le 9:1-10:20} {Quick Study: #Le 4:1-6:30}

“The love of the Lord.” {#Ho 3:1}

Believer, look back through all thine experience, and

think of the way whereby the Lord thy God has led thee in the

wilderness, and how he hath fed and clothed thee every day—how

he hath borne with thine ill manners—how he hath put up with

all thy murmurings, and all thy longings after the flesh pots of

Egypt—how he has opened the rock to supply thee, and fed thee

with manna that came down from heaven. Think of how his grace

has been sufficient for thee in all thy troubles—how his blood

has been a pardon to thee in all thy sins—how his rod and his

staff have comforted thee. When thou hast thus looked back upon

the love of the Lord, then let faith survey his love in thefuture, for remember that Christ’s covenant and blood have

something more in them than the past. He who has loved thee

and pardoned thee, shall never cease to love and pardon. He is

Alpha, and he shall be Omega also: he is first, and he shall be

last. Therefore, bethink thee, when thou shalt pass through

the valley of the shadow of death, thou needest fear no evil,

for he is with thee. When thou shalt stand in the cold floods of

Jordan, thou needest not fear, for death cannot separate thee

from his love; and when thou shalt come into the mysteries of

eternity thou needest not tremble, “For I am persuaded, that

neither death; nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor

powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor

depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from

the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Now, soul,

is not thy love refreshed? Does not this make thee love Jesus?

Doth not a flight through illimitable plains of the ether of

love inflame thy heart and compel thee to delight thyself in the

Lord thy God? Surely as we meditate on “the love of the Lord,”

our hearts burn within us, and we long to love him more.
