Sunday Meditation – All Things Are Ours

“What is there in heaven and earth that the love of Christ has not made ours?  There is nothing left but himself.  And, alas, what would all these things profit, if we lack him?  Without Christ, earth would be hell, and heaven would not be heaven.  He is the hope of earth, and the glory of heaven.  See here the height of his love; he has given us himself, and all with himself.  His love would let nothing be withheld from us:  not his life – he gave his life a ransom for us; not his blood – he washed us in his blood; not his glory – ‘The glory that you have given me I have given them them’ (John 17:22).  O boundless love!  O the unsearchable riches of Christ’s love!  O happy souls that have an interest in his love and in these riches!”
