The Love of God

“Above all things, get the love of God in thy heart. This will constrain us to obedience. If we look altogether upon our discouragements, alas! we shall soon flag and fall away. But if we eye our encouragements, it is impossible we should desert Christ, or his truth. Who would not hold out, having such a captain, and such a cause as we fight for. Where the truth is received in the love of it, there is constancy.”

– Richard Sibbes, from “The Danger of Backsliding” (The Works of Richard Sibbes, Volume 7)
