John W. Peterson wrote a song that has been flowing through my mind and heart this past month: O Glorious Love of Christ My Lord Divine! It is this glorious love which has begun the good work in us that He promises to complete. As Oswald Chambers put it, it is the this glorious love that:
…spoils us for every other interest in life save as we can disciple man and women to Him. It is woe to every other ambition when once Christ fixes His love on a man or woman consciously…
This glorious love that Jesus fixes on us will either result in our greatest sorrow [But the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions (Mtt.19:22)], or our greatest joy ["These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full" (Jn.15:11)].
