Morning and Evening

For the evening of April 29th
by Charles H. Spurgeon

"The Lord taketh pleasure in His people." --Psalm 149:4

How comprehensive is the love of Jesus! There is no part of His people's interests which He does not consider, and there isnothing which concerns their welfare which is not important toHim. Not merely does He think of you, believer, as an immortalbeing, but as a mortal being too. Do not deny it or doubt it:"The very hairs of your head are all numbered." "The steps of agood man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in His way"It were a sad thing for us if this mantle of love did not coverall our concerns, for what mischief might be wrought to us inthat part of our business which did not come under our graciousLord's inspection! Believer, rest assured that the heart ofJesus cares about your meaner affairs. The breadth of His tenderlove is such that you may resort to Him in all matters; for inall your afflictions He is afflicted, and like as a fatherpitieth his children, so doth He pity you. The meanest interestsof all His saints are all borne upon the broad bosom of the Sonof God. Oh, what a heart is His, that doth not merely comprehendthe persons of His people, but comprehends also the diverse andinnumerable concerns of all those persons! Dost thou think, OChristian, that thou canst measure the love of Christ? Think ofwhat His love has brought thee--justification, adoption,sanctification, eternal life! The riches of His goodness areunsearchable; thou shalt never be able to tell them out or evenconceive them. Oh, the breadth of the love of Christ! Shall sucha love as this have half our hearts? Shall it have a cold lovein return? Shall Jesus' marvellous lovingkindness and tendercare meet with but faint response and tardy acknowledgment? O mysoul, tune thy harp to a glad song of thanksgiving! Go to thyrest rejoicing, for thou art no desolate wanderer, but a belovedchild, watched over, cared for, supplied, and defended by thyLord.
