If ye love me, keep my commandments. … – John 14:12-21

If we keep our promise to him, he keeps his promise to us. The child of God dwelling in constant faithfulness to his voice, even in the smallest things, will receive the victory. Pray that he will find us loyal and victorious to the end.

‘Tis in him we are elected; not in ourselves, as though personally some were chosen, and others past by: But in the Seed Christ, the Elect of God, the Object of the Father’s Love, all who are gathered into him, are made a chosen Generation, an elect People by the Lord. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
