Hymn For The Week: His Love

For Thy love is better than wine, In those days wine was the highest of the luxuries this earth offered. Paul wrote. "and be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess: but filled with the Holy Spirit." (Eph. 5:18).

THE LOVE OF GOD - Traditional Hymns

Oh, to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that (fill with your name) might experience that excitement, that belonging to Christ and fellowship with Him! Being dedicated Christians, this is what we need.

We need to come to that attitude of which Peter wrote:"whom having not seen, ye love; in whom though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory" (1 Peter 1:8).

Habakkuk stated it like this: although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vine: the labor of the olive shall fail,.... Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation" (Hab. 3:17-18).

Wine gives a temporary lift, but it will let you down. Allow the Spirit of God to come into your life. He will shed abroad in your heart the love of God. That is one reason we need the Holy Spirit.
