"Nothing gives Christ greater delight than the love of His people." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
Ah! if that question, “If ye love me,” needed to be raised in the sacred college of the twelve, much more must it be allowed to sift our churches, and to test ourselves. ~ Charles h. spurgeon
"I cannot bear it—that we should love Jesus little. It seems to me horrible. Not to have your heart all on fire for Christ—this is execrable! Let us love him to the utmost. Let us ask him to give us larger hearts, and to fire them with the flame that is his own, that we may love him to the utmost possibilities of affection." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
