Titus 3:4June 4 Morning
When God our Savior made his kindness and love for humanity appear, he saved us, but not because of anything we had done to gain his approval. Instead, because of his mercy he saved us through the washing in which the Holy Spirit gives us new birth and renewal.
How sweet it is to behold the Saviour communing with his own beloved people! There can be nothing more delightful than, by the Divine Spirit, to be led into this fertile field of relationship with God. Let the mind consider, for an instant, the history of the Redeemer's love, and a thousand enchanting acts of affection will suggest themselves. His loving kindness is designed to weave our hearts into Christ and integrate the thoughts and emotions of our renewed souls with the mind of Jesus. When we meditate upon this amazing love, and behold the all-glorious Saviour of the Church endowing her with all his ancient wealth, our souls should faint for joy. Who is he that can endure such a weight of love? That partial sense of it which the Holy Spirit sometimes offers, is more than the soul can contain. How transporting must be a complete view of God's love! In heaven, the soul shall have the understanding to discern all of the Saviour's gifts, wisdom to appreciate them, and the time in which to meditate upon them. We shall then commune with Jesus more intimately than at present. But who can imagine the sweetness of such fellowship? It must be one of the things which have not entered into the heart of man, but which God has prepared for them that love him. Oh, to burst open the door of our Lord's granaries, and see the plenty which he has stored up for us! This will overwhelm us with love. By faith we see, as in a glass darkly, the reflected image of his unbounded treasures, but when we shall actually see the heavenly things themselves, with our own eyes, how deep will be the stream of fellowship in which our soul shall bath itself! Till then our loudest songs shall be reserved for our loving benefactor, Jesus Christ our Lord, whose love for us is more wonderful then the love of any man or woman.
