Law of Love

The Holy One has given rules for the guidance of all,—the standard of character from which none can swerve and be guiltless. God’s will is to be diligently and conscientiously studied, and it must be made paramount in all the affairs of life. The laws which every human agent is to obey flow from the heart of infinite love.

A call to love

Oh, that the soul may be thoroughly cleansed! Oh, that the love of God may abide in the soul as a living principle! Cultivate love for Jesus, love for those who believe in Him, and love for the wandering and perishing. We must have the love which is of heavenly birth, and nourish it as a heavenly plant. Stubbornness, which prevails to a fearful extent, must be broken up. The professed followers of Christ should no longer catch up little points of difference, meditating upon them, talking about them, and magnifying them until love is gone from the soul, as water from a leaky vessel. We must have the sanctifying influence of the grace of Christ in our hearts, else all our deeds will be as sounding brass and as a tinkling cymbal.

Effect of Love

The love of Christ must be an abiding principle in the heart, that will bear fruit in love and tenderness and respect for one another.The love of the truth, the doing of the words of Christ, would soften and subdue our hearts.The purity and goodness and love of the great heart of Jesus must be reflected upon our hearts and revealed in our characters, that we may be partakers of the divine nature and have tender compassion for each other.

Call to Grow

Excerpts from:
The Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, Page 121,126
Sabbath Talk
Advancing in Christian Experience Minneapolis General Conference Sabbath,October 20,1888 – Ms 8,1888

You cannot be a fruitful Christian and have a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ unless you are a practical Christian,unless you are making progress all the time in divine life. This is all important.

I wish you could see and feel that if you are not advancing you are retrograding.

Now Christ is in the heavenly sanctuary. And what is He doing? Making atonement for us,cleansing the sanctuary from the sins of the people. Then we must enter by faith into the sanctuary with Him,we must commence the work in the sanctuary of our souls. We are to cleanse ourselves from all defilement. We must “cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

We can be filled with all the fullness of God. Our lives may measure with the life of God. Then can we press back the powers of darkness. Glory to God in the highest! I love Him because He first loved me.
