The Fullness Of God’s Love
By Adolph Saphir (1831 – 1891)
Do you know that Jesus, your Savior, your Lord, your God, is at the right hand of God, and that you are the brethren of Jesus and the children of the Father, and the heirs of the kingdom? Do you live in the hope that you will behold Him, that you will see Jesus as He is, and that then you will be like Him? And having this hope in you, do you purify yourselves even as He is pure? Oh, live in the love of God! Live on the love of God! Live from the love of God! Start with the fullness of God’s love in Jesus Christ! Never be tempted to look again to anything else but the blood of Jesus, which taketh away all sin! And each time you go to the Lord’s Table and commemorate the dying love of Christ, say to yourself, “Now I am showing to all the world the death of the Lord; that He has finished the work, that salvation is perfect, that He has offered a complete, all-sufficient, and full atonement.” Rejoice that Christ is here who was crucified, yea, rather, who is risen again, and that we who believe are the body of Christ, one with Him for evermore. Who is he that will condemn or that will separate us from the love of God, which is in Jesus Christ? He who died for us is none else than the Son of the Most High!
