Do you not know that God is an eternal selfexistent Being; that to say he loves now, is, in
fact, to say he always did love, since with God there is no past, and can be no future. What
we call past, present, and future, he wraps in one eternal NOW. And if you say he loves you
now, you say he loved yesterday; he loved in the past eternity; and he will love forever; for
now with God is past, present, and future.
Christ’s love is the sun and our love is the moonlight, which we are able to give forth
because the sun hath looked upon us.
