Sunday Meditation – Loving God’s Word

“Now a hypocrite may be brought to fear and tremble at the Word of God, but he never loves it. First, fear and love do not join together in them. They fear God’s Word, but they hate it. They wish that there were no such Word of God, and that it was not so strict and holy as it is. And that’s as much as to say that God were not so holy, which is as much to say, ‘I wish there were no God at all.’ And yet a wicked heart is so in love with his lusts that, rather than that he should not have his lusts, he would have no God at all.”
