is Cheap Enough
shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord
shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall
be satisfied. Isa. 53:10, 11.
The love of God is without measure, without comparison! It is infinite. .
. . When we contemplate the dignity and glory of Christ we see how great was
that love that prompted the sacrifice made upon the cross of Calvary for the
redemption of a lost world. This theme will fill the saints with wonder and
amazement through eternal ages, and why should we not meditate upon it here
in this world? . . .
O the mystery
of godliness--God manifest in the flesh! This mystery increases as we try
to comprehend it. It is incomprehensible, and yet human beings will allow
worldly, earthly things to intercept the faint view it is possible for mortals
to have of Jesus and His matchless love. . . . How can we be enthusiastic
over earthly, common things and not be stirred with this picture --the cross
of Calvary, the love that is revealed in the death of God's dear Son . . .
humiliation and anguish were endured to bring back the wanderers, guilty and
thankless, to the Father's house. O the home of the blest--I cannot afford
to lose it! I shall, if saved in the kingdom of God, be constantly discerning
new depths in the plan of salvation. All the redeemed saints will see and
appreciate as never before the love of the Father and the Son, and songs of
praise will burst forth from immortal tongues. He loved us, He gave His life
for us. With glorified bodies, with enlarged capacities, with hearts made
pure, with lips undefiled, we shall sing the riches of redeeming love. There
will be no suffering ones in heaven, no skeptics whom we must labor to convince
of the reality of eternal things, no prejudices to uproot, but all will be
susceptible to that love which passeth knowledge. Rest, thank God, there is
a rest for the people of God, where Jesus will lead the redeemed into green
pastures, by the streams of living waters which make glad the city of our
God. Then the prayer of Jesus to His Father will be answered: "I will
that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am."
