“We commune with the Father in love, thanking him and praising him for his eternal, free, life changing, saving love (John 16:26–27; Rom. 5:5–6; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 John 4:8–9). Owen expands on these terms, which are worthy of our reflection: Eternal. It was fixed on us before the foundation of the world. Before we were, or had done the least good, then were his thoughts upon us. . . . Free. He loves us because he will; there was, there is, nothing in us for which we should be beloved. . . . Unchangeable. Though we change every day, yet his love changes not. . . . Distinguishing. He has not thus loved all the world. . . . Why should he fix his love on us, and pass by millions from whom we differ not by nature? 8” from “God Is: A Devotional Guide to the Attributes of God” by Mark Jones
