The Set Apart Young Woman

The set apart young woman not only acknowledges Jesus to be her King, but her heart is fulll of loving devotion to Him as such. Nothing can make her heart leap like the name of that august, that more royal name. She remebers what Jesus did, how He loved her, and gave Himself for her; she looks to the Cross and remebers the streams of blood whereby she was redeemed, even when she was an enemy of God. She remebers Christ in heaven, enthroned at the right hand of the Father, and she loves Him there, and it ravishes her heart to think that God is highly exalted the once- despised and rejected One, and given Him a name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. She pants for the time when the Crucified shall come in His glory, and rule the nations as their liege Lord. She loves Jesus so that she feels she belongs to Him altogether, bought with His blood,
redeemed by His power, and comforted by His presence; she delights to know that she is not her own, for she is bought with a price... She loves her King, and loves Him with ardor unquenchable, for many waters cannot drown His love, neither can floods quench it." ~ Charles Spurgeon
