III. RESULTS OF LOVE TO GOD UNDER BOTH COVENANTS.

UNDER THE OLD COVENANT.

Deuteronomy 5:10 — "And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments." Deuteronomy 7:9 — "Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations."

Exodus 20:O — "And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments." Psalm 69:36 — "The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein." Psalm 91:14 — "Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name." <19E520> Psalm 145:20 — "The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy." Isaiah 56:6-7 — "Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, tO be his servants, every one that keepeth the Sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people."

First Proposition: The blessings and promises under the Old Covenant were for those who loved God.

UNDER THE NEW COVENANT.

1 Corinthians 8:3 — "But if any man love God, the same is known of him."

Second Proposition: He that loves God is known by God. James 1:12 — "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him."

Third Proposition: The crown of life is for those who love God. James 2:5 — "Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom, which he hath promised to them that love him?"

Fourth Proposition: The kingdom is promised to those who love God. 1 Corinthians 2:9 — "But it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

Fifth Proposition: God has prepared for those who love Him things beyond what the eye has seen or the ear has heard, beyond what has entered into the heart of man; deep things which the Spirit alone searches and reveals. (See context.) Romans 8:28 — "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose."

Sixth Proposition: All things work together for good for those who love God. Romans 8:28-30 RV — "And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose. For whom he foreknew, he also foreordained to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren: and whom he foreordained, them he also called: and whom he called them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified."

Seventh Proposition: Those who love God are "called according to his purpose," 'foreknown," 'foreordained to be conformed to the image of HIS Son," "justified," "glorified."
