 Kisses -brooks


[b]Kisses[/b]

(Thomas Brooks, "Heaven on Earth" 1667)

"Oh, that He would kiss me with the kisses of His mouth!
For Your love is more delightful than wine." Song 1:2

Not with a kiss--but with the kisses of His mouth.
A soul once kissed by Christ, can never have enough
of the kisses of Christ; His lips drop myrrh and mercy.
No kisses, compared to the kisses of Christ. The more
any soul loves Christ, the more serious, studious, and
industrious will that soul be, to have the love of Christ
discovered, confirmed, witnessed, and sealed to it.

A soul once kissed by Christ, would gladly have . . .
her drop turned into an ocean;
her spark into a flame;
her penny into a pound;
her mite into a million.

A soul who truly loves Christ . . .
can never see enough,
nor ever taste enough,
nor ever feel enough,
nor ever enjoy enough
of the love of Christ. When once they have found
His love to be better than wine, then nothing will
satisfy them but the kisses of His mouth.

"May you experience the love of Christ, though it is
so great you will never fully understand it." Ep. 3:19

 Re: Kisses -brooks

In John 14v15 Jesus says 'If you love Me, keep My commandments.'

It's simple enough to obey.

Christ's death on the cross showed God's love for us.

How do we show our love for Him?

It is an icredible, uncompromising love that God has for us and has shown us.

Out of genuine love for Him, let us show our love for Him by obeying Him. He is worthy.

God bless.

 Re:

I know this isn't what this thread is really about, but I just ordered the complete works of Thomas Brooks.

So much rich food for thought.

I'm blessed and challenged just reading the devotionals. Thank you.

God bless.

 Re:

'His love for Christ...is very refreshing.'

Good verse.

It would glorify God if our love for Him was evident to all.

God bless.
