MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take
heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
ETERNAL LIFE GIVES LOVE
[part 3 of 4]
*____Love never repeats scandal. It covers with silence the mistakes
and the failings of others. It leads us on down through life-blessing, pouring out its fragrance as the roses pour out their perfume upon the air.
____The rose gives until finally the little petals are carried
away on the bosom of the wind and there is nothing left but the naked stem where once Love's gorgeous beauty held court. We will live like that. The rose is all unconscious of it. It was a rose, and because it was a rose, it gave. We are the children of Love,
and because we are the children of Love, we give. This is the effect of Eternal Life, God's Nature, imparted to men.
____We have God's Love Nature in us. We are yielding ourselves to its sway. It has brought into
our lives a new kind of joy and happiness that we never knew. This life is the Father's will for us. Jesus lived in the Father's will. So will we.
____...."Grace and peace be multiplied to you in [through]
the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power [Grace] has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him
who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust".... 2 Peter 1:2-4
