Believe His Love

Hugh Binning, Works, p. 34:

Jean-Honoré Fragonard - La lettre d'amourI know no more effectual way to increase love to Jesus Christ than to believe his love. Christ Jesus is “the author and finisher” both of faith and love; and “we love him, because he first loved us.” Therefore the right discovery of Jesus Christ, what he is, and what he hath done for sinners, is that which will of all things most prevail to engage the soul unto him. But as long as ye suspend your faith upon the being or increase of your love and obedience – as the manner of too many is – you take even such a course as he that will not plant the tree till he see the fruits of it; which is contrary to common sense and reason.
