The Interchange of Love

There is one God; and there is none other but he: and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul —Mark 12:32-33

 

Having been made in His image, we have within us the capacity to know God and the instinct that we should worship Him. The very moment that the Spirit of God has quickened us to His life in regeneration, our whole being senses its kinship to God and leaps up in joyous recognition!

That response within our beings, a response to forgiveness and pardon and regeneration, signals the miracle of the heavenly birth—without which we cannot see the kingdom of God.

Yes, God desires and is pleased to communicate with us through the avenues of our minds, our wills and our emotions. The continuous and unembarrassed interchange of love and thought between God and the souls of redeemed men and women is the throbbing heart of the New Testament religion. WHT025

The one who is caught by [love] is bound by the strongest of all bondsand yet it is a pleasant burden….Nothing makes you so much God’s, nor God so much yours, as this sweet bond. The one who has found this way will seek no other. BME036
