Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

FEBRUARY 18

 

The LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul—

Deut. 13:3.

 

The Kingdom is intended only for those who by God’s grace shall at heart become like to the Lord Jesus, in that they will love the Lord with all their hearts, with all their souls, and be able to say, “Not my will, but thy will, O Lord, be done.” No other condition than this of full submission to the Lord can make us acceptable for the Kingdom; for no other condition represents full self submission and full love to God. And let us not forget that all the heavenly things which “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man,” God has reserved for them that love Him supremely.
