Practical Observations.

1. “Love is the fulfilling of the law.” He that “loves God with his whole heart, mind, soul and strength, and his neighbor as himself shall live.” Such a soul has passed from death unto life, is a partaker of the divine nature, and a fit abode for the indwelling of the living Christ.

2. The test of our love for Christ is “keeping his words,” not some of them, but a complete surrender of our will to his. As he loved the Father and “pleased him in all things,” so if we love Christ we must make his will supreme in all things. When there is no discord between our will and that of the Master, then our hearts shall be fitted for a temple of the Lord and the Son will make his abode in the heart.

3. The soul that is completely resigned to the will of Christ, can always pray “thy will be done,” will enjoy the presence of Christ always and, with his presence and his peace such will ever feel, whatever may betide, that Christ is with them, that they are held in his hand, and that “all things shall work together for good to them that love God.”228
