The love of the truth

The love of the truth

(J. C. Philpot, “The Valley of Achor” 1861)

“They perish because they did not receive the love of

 the truth, that they might be saved.” 2 Thess. 2:10

There is a receiving of ‘the truth’, and a receiving of

‘the love of the truth’. These two things widely differ.

To receive the truth will not necessarily save; for many

who receive the truth, never receive ‘the love of the truth’.

Professors by thousands receive the truth into their

judgment, and adopt the plan of salvation as their creed;

but are neither saved nor sanctified thereby. But to receive

‘the love of the truth’ by Jesus being made sweet and

precious to the soul, is to receive salvation itself.

“Yes, He is very precious to you who believe.” 1 Peter 2:7
