Joy and Strength 02/28

Mercy unto you, and peace, and love be multiplied. Jude 2.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John iv. 8.

He rests in God and He in him,
Who still abides in love;
In love the saints and seraphim
Obey and praise above;
For God is love; the loveless heart
Hath in His life and joy no part.
C. F. Gellert.

DIVINE love is perfect peace and joy, it is a freedom from all disquiet, it is all content and happiness; and makes everything to rejoice in itself. Love is the Christ of God; wherever it comes, it comes as the blessing and happiness of every natural life, a redeemer from all evil, a fulfiller of all righteousness, and a peace of God, which passeth all understanding. Through all the universe of things, nothing is uneasy, unsatisfied, or restless, but because it is not governed by love, or because its nature has not reached or attained the full birth of the spirit of love. For when that is done, every hunger is satisfied, and all complaining, murmuring, accusing, resenting, revenging, and striving, are as totally suppressed and overcome, as the coldness, thickness, and horror of darkness are suppressed and overcome by the breaking forth of the light.
William Law.
