The Cross and Its Message
"God is jealous." - Nahum 1:2
Your Lord id very jealous of your love, O believer. Did He choose you? He cannot bear that you should chose another. Did He buy you with His own blood? He cannot endure that you should think that you are your own, or that you belong to this world. He loved you with such a love that He would not stop in heaven without you; He would sooner die than you should perish, and He cannot endure that anything should stand between your heart's love and Himself.
