Leighton: love will stammer

Friday, October 28, 2022
    Feast of Simon & Jude, Apostles
    Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
    —1 Peter 1:3-5 (NIV)
    What are our lame praises in comparison with His love? Nothing, and less than nothing; but love will stammer rather than be dumb.
    ... Robert Leighton (1611-1684), A Practical Commentary Upon the First Epistle of St. Peter, London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1849, p. 45 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 1:3-5; Ps. 34:1-3; Isa. 32:1-4; Col. 1:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are always greater than my praise.
