[b]My sweet pomegranate wine[/b](Thomas Watson, "The Lord's Prayer")"Christ's love compels us." 2 Corinthians 5:14True love to love God turns the soul into a seraphim; it makes it burn in a flame of affection. Love is the truest touchstone of sincerity. Love is the queen of the graces; it commands the whole soul. If our love to God is genuine, we let Him have the supremacy of our love. We will set Him in the highest place of our soul. We will give Him the purest of our love. "I would give You spiced wine to drink, my sweet pomegranate wine." Canticles 8:2. If the spouse had anything better--a cup more juicy and spiced--Christ would drink of that! We give the creature the milk of our love;but God gets the cream!
