A Flower Most Sweet and Fragrant

The love of Christians unto Christ is a grace wrought in their hearts by the Spirit. It is a flower most sweet and fragrant, but there is no seed of it in the nature of any man since the fall. It is planted in the soul by the Spirit of God. Love to Christ is a divine spark that comes down from above, a fire which is kindled by the breath of the Lord, Whose essence is love.
