Constraining love

Constraining love

“Oh love the Lord, all ye his saints.” 
Psalm 31:23

Suggested Further Reading: 
1 John 4:7-12

Christ’s love to us we sometimes guess at, but, 
ah, it is so far beyond our thoughts, our reasonings, 
our praises, and our apprehension too, in the sweetest moments of our most spiritual ecstasy,—who can tell it? 
“Oh, how he loved us!” 
When Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus, 
the Jews exclaimed with surprise
—“Behold how he loved him.” 

Verily, you might say the like with deeper emphasis. 
There was nothing in you to make him love you, 
but he left heaven’s throne for you. 

As he came down the celestial hills, methinks the angels said
 “Oh, how he loved them.” 
When he lay in the manger an infant,
 they gathered round and said, “Oh how he loves.”

 But when they saw him sweating in the garden, when he was put into the crucible, and began to be melted in the furnace, 
then indeed, the spirits above began to know how much he loved us. 

Oh Jesus! 
When I see thee mocked and spat upon
—when I see thy dear cheeks become a reservoir for all the filth and spittle of unholy mouths
—when I see thy back rent with knotted whips
—when I behold thy honour and thy life both trailing in the dust
—when I see thee charged with madness, with treason, with blasphemy
—when I behold thy hands and feet pierced, thy body stripped naked and exposed
—when I see thee hanging on the cross between heaven and earth, in torments dire and excruciating
—when I hear thee cry “I thirst,” and see the vinegar thrust to thy lips—
when I hear thy direful cry, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me,” my spirit is compelled to say, “Oh how he loves!

For meditation:
 How cold and hard hearted we must be to ever question the Lord’s love towards us (Malachi 1:2).

Sermon no. 325
4 June (Preached 3 June 1860)

 If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, 
you can be accepted into his kingdom. 
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted. 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
 I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 
who died for me to make me free of sin, 
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free.
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value,
 not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask. 
“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
 not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.” 
.... Reflection and inspiration from the "Prince of Preachers,"
~Charles Haddon Spurgeon~ 

 The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God,
without acquiring any monetary reward. 
God gave me the salvation for free, 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way ..
