Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

MARCH 12

 

The end of the commandment is love from a pure heart, and a good conscience, and an undissembled faith—1.Tim. 1:5.

 

We are to have clearly before our minds the fact that the ultimate object of all the Divine dealings for us and with us, and the ultimate significance of all the Divine promises made to us, is the development of love, which is Godlikeness, for God is love. And to have this love developed in us, in the sense and to the degree intended by the Lord, it is necessary that it shall come from a pure heart, in full accord with the Lord and His law of love, and wholly antagonistic to the Adversary and his law of selfishness.
