The cross was God’s expressed love for you. Don’t look to material blessings as a token of His love. One day you may find yourself in a dungeon, with few friends and no material wealth. (This was the apostle Paul’s experience—he suffered the loss of all things for the sake of the gospel; Phil. 3:8.) So, fortify yourself. Do what Paul did: look only to the cross, and God’s love will never be quenched.
Song of Solomon 8:7 Many waters cannot quench love, Nor can the floods drown it. If a man would give for love All the wealth of his house, It would be utterly despised.
