“The love which grace has begotten in the heart of the bride is itself divine and persistent; many waters cannot quench it, nor the floods drown it. Suffering and pain, bereavement and loss may test its constancy, but they will not quench it. Its source is not human or natural; like the life, it is hidden with Christ in God.
Our love to God is secured by God’s love to us. To the soul really rescued by grace, no bribe to forsake God’s love will be finally successful. ‘If a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would be utterly contemned (Song of Solomon).'”
