The emancipated spirit loves the Saviour

We love him because he first loved us.” Hers. is the starting point of love’s race. This is the rippling rill which afterwards swells into a river the torch with which the pile of piety is kindled. The emancipated spirit loves the Saviour for the freedom which he has conferred upon it; it beholds the agony with which the priceless gift was purchased, and it adores the bleeding sufferer for the pains which he so generously endured.

On taking a survey of our whole life, we see that the kindness of God has run all through it like a silver thread.
