1 Peter 1, 8

I.

The heart was made to love.  It is set on something all through life, and that governs our course.  How vital it is to everyone is revealed by one’s final destiny.

II.

Many things bid for our affection.  On every hand their voices are calling to us.  They paint in rich colors the rewards they promise.  This is especially true of evil, to deceive if it were possible the very elect.  Yielding is perilous.

III.

Jesus bids for our love that he may save us and greatly enrich our lives.  “Lovest thou me?”  He is worthy of our utmost devotion.  To set our affections on him elevates and purifies every relation in live.  To love him is to enjoy the greatest inspiration for all life.  What great and heroic characters it has produced!  By it men are lifted to the greatest endeavor.

IV.

God save us from the low, degrading things that enslave men.

May we love him with all our hearts and prove how glorious is such a life.
