This is predicted of the church of God which, according to covenant-transactions of the glorious Trinity, stands in the nearest and dearest relation to Jesus her head. She is here spoken of as a single person, Thou.' She is called Christ's body, ' and the bride, the Lamb's Wife.' (rev. Xxi. Of whom saith God the'father, I have loved thee with an everlasting love.' (j er. Xxxi. Yea, saith the Son of God to his Father, of all his beloved members, Thou hast loved them as thou hast loved me; and thoulovedst me before the foundation of the world.' (john xvii. 23, Oh most comforting truths of God's word: how ancient is the love of God to his church That God should love us miserable sinners at all, is amazing; but that he should love us with the very same everlasting unchangeable love, wherewith he loves hisown beloved Son, this surpasseth all knowledge. This love is the source of all blessings in time; this love secures all happiness in eternity.
