GOD'S LOVE DEEPER THA OUR SIS.BY ALEXADER MACLARE I have loved thee with an everlasting love : therefore with loving-kindnesshave I drawn thee. — Je:i. xxxi. 3.This Man, if He were a prophet, would have known whoand what manner of woman this is that toucheth Him," saysthe unloving and self righteous heart, "for she is a sinner." Ah! thereis nothing more beautiful than the difference between the thought aboutsinful creatures which is natural to a holy being, and the thought about sin-ful creatures which is natural to a self-righicoiis being. The one isall contempt ; the other, all pity. He knew what she was, and there-fore He let her come close to Him with the touch of her pollutedhand, and pour out the gains of her lawless life and the adornments of her former corruption upon His most blessed and most holy head. Hisknowledge of her as a s.'nner, what did it do to His love for her? It madethat love gentle and tender, as knowing that she could not bear therevelation of the blaze oi His purity. It smoothed His face and softenedHis tones, and breathed through all His knowledge and notice of hertimid and yet confident approach. "Daughter, I know all about it — all thy wanderings and thy vile transgressions : I know them all, and Mylove is mightier than all these. They may be as the great sea, but My loveis like the everlasting mountains, whose roots go down beneath the ocean ;and My love is like the everlasting heaven, whose brightness covers it allover." God's love is Christ's love ; Christ's love is God's love. And thisis the lesson — that that infinite and Divine loving-kindness does not turnaway from thee because thou art a sinner, but remains hovering about thee,with wooing invitations and gentle touches, if it may draw thee torepentance, and open a fountain of answering affection in thy seared anddry heart. The love of God is deeper than all our sins.Sin is but the cloud behind which the everlasting sun lies in all itspower and warmth, unaffected by the cloud ; and the light will yet strike,the light of His love will yet pierce through, with its merciful shaftsbringing healing in their beams, and dispersing all the pitchy darkness of man's transgression. And as the mists gather themselves up and rollaway, dissipated by the heat of that sun in the upper sky, and reveal thefair earth below, so the love of Christ shines in, melting the mist anddissipating the fog, thinning it off in its thickest places, and at last piercingits way right through it, down to the heart of the man that has been lyingbeneath the oppression of this thick darkness, and who thought that thefog was the sky, and that there was no sun there above. God be thanked !The everlasting love of God, that comes from the heart of His own being,and is there because of Himself, will never be quenched because of
