Immutable love!


Beloved, can you conceive how much Christ
will love you when you are in heaven?

Have you ever tried to fathom that bottomless sea of
affection in which you shall swim, when you shall bathe
yourself in seas of heavenly rest?

Did you ever think of the love which Christ will manifest
to you, when he shall present you without spot, or blemish,
or any such thing, before his Father's throne?

Well, pause and remember, that he loves you at this hour as
much as he will love you then; for he will be the same forever
as he is today, and he is the same today as he will be forever.

This one thing I know: if Jesus' heart is set on me,
he will not love me one atom better when this head
wears a crown, and when this hand shall with joyous
fingers touch the strings of golden harps, than he
does now, amidst all my sin and care and woe.

I believe that saying which is written -
"As the Father has loved me, even so have I loved you"
and a higher degree of love we cannot imagine.

The Father loves his Son infinitely, and even so today,
believer, does the Son of God love you.

Every affection of his yearns over you;
all his heart flows out to you.

He cannot love you more; he will not love you less.
