“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked”


““As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you.”
- John_15:9
As the Father loves the Son, in the same manner Jesus loves his people. What is that divine method? He loved him without beginning, and thus Jesus loves his members. “I have loved thee with an everlasting love.” You can trace the beginning of human affection; you can easily find the beginning of your love to Christ, but his love to us is a stream whose source is hidden in eternity. God the Father loves Jesus without any change. Christian, take this for your comfort, that there is no change in Jesus Christ’s love to those who rest in him. Yesterday you were on Tabor’s top, and you said, “He loves me:” to-day you are in the valley of humiliation, but he loves you still the same. On the hill Mizar, and among the Hermons, you heard his voice, which spake so sweetly with the turtle-notes of love; and now on the sea, or even in the sea, when all his waves and billows go over you, his heart is faithful to his ancient choice. The Father loves the Son without any end, and thus does the Son love his people. Saint, thou needest not fear the loosing of the silver cord, for his love for thee will never cease. Rest confident that even down to the grave Christ will go with you, and that up again from it he will be your guide to the celestial hills. Moreover, the Father loves the Son without any measure, and the same immeasurable love the Son bestows upon his chosen ones. The whole heart of Christ is dedicated to his people. He “loved us and gave himself for us.” His is a love which passeth knowledge. Ah! we have indeed an immutable Saviour, a precious Saviour, one who loves without measure, without change, without beginning, and without end, even as the Father loves him! There is much food here for those who know how to digest it. May the Holy Ghost lead us into its marrow and fatness!


The Lord is saying.....I am with you child, I have not changed, nor have my feelings changed towards you. Though you have gone into a slight wobble, the rock of my love shall not falter nor your firm foundation of salvation move. For I am your rock and I change not. No child though the hills be removed, my loving kindness shall not depart from you.


Oh! Love that will not let me go. Part 2

Isaiah 54 10 For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the LORD, who has mercy on you.

No matter how you feel today, know this..... You are forgiven, loved and cherished. You are a new creation, made in the likeness of God himself. You have a bright future, your path grows brighter day by day and God's promise to you is this.......His thoughts towards you are for good and not disaster. He has good plans for you, to do you good, to give you a future of peace and of hope. Nothing missing - Nothing broken
from Jeremiah 29:11

Psalm 115 :12-15 The LORD has been mindful of us;
He will bless us;
He will bless the house of Israel;
He will bless the house of Aaron.
He will bless those who fear the LORD,
Both small and great.

May the LORD give you increase more and more,
You and your children.
May you be blessed by the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.
