Since God loves His people in Christ, it is not regulated by their fruitfulness, but s the same at all times. because He loves them in Christ, the Father loves them as Christ. The time will come when His prayer will be answered (John 17:23). Only faith can grasp those marvelous things, for neither reasoning nor feelings can do so. God loves us in Christ. What infinite delight the Father has as He beholds His people in His dear Son!
