The Only Way to Happiness

The whole Scripture is but one entire love-letter, all written in golden letters, dispatched from the Lord Christ to His beloved spouse on earth. In it, there is so much to be read of . . . the love of Christ, the heart of Christ,  the kindness of Christ,  the grace of Christ, and  the glory of Christ, that a holy heart cannot but love, and embrace, and endeavor to conform to every line. The whole word of God is a field—and Christ  is the treasure which is hidden in that field!

[Thomas Brooks]

Colossians 2:2-3 … That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;  In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

John 1:14 … And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Galatians 3:22 … But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
