That Love is Spontaneous

    Some time ago, in an inquiry meeting, I said to a young miss who said that she could not love God, that it was very hard for her to love Him:

    "Is it hard for you to love your mother? Do you have to learn to love your mother?"

    She looked up through her tears, and said, "No; I can't help it; that is spontaneous."

    "Well," I said, "when the Holy Spirit kindles love in your heart, you can not help loving God; it will be spontaneous."

    When the Spirit of God comes into your heart and mine, it will be easy to love and serve God.
