I will be their God

From Spurgeon’s sermon, “God in the Covenant”

Come, soul, is there not enough here to delight you?
Put this promise to your lips; – “I will be their God!

Did ever harp or violin sound half so sweetly as this-
I will be their God?”

Not all the music blown from sweet instruments,
or drawn from living strings, could ever give such melody
as this sweet promise- “I will be their God.”

Oh! here is a very sea of bliss, a very ocean of delight!
Come, bathe your spirit in it!

You may swim, aye, to eternity, and never find a shore!

You may dive to the very infinite and never find the bottom!

I will be their God.”
Oh!  this will make your eyes sparkle,
your foot dance for joy,
and your heart beat high with bliss!

“Having loved His own who were in the world–He loved them to the very end!” John 13:1

Christian, God’s love to you is always the same. He cannot love you more–and He will not love you less!

Never, when afflictions multiply, when terrors frighten you or when your distresses abound–does God’s love falter or flag.  Judge not the Lord by feeble sense–but trust Him for His grace. Whether you are into the depths of misery, or lifted into the seventh Heaven of delight–His faithful love never varies or fluctuates–it is everlasting in its continuity!

“His faithful love endures forever!” Psalm 136:1

“I have loved you, My people, with an everlasting love!” Jeremiah 31:3

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!” Lamentations 3:22
