Quotes to Consider:
Robert Candlish on I John 2: "This anointing is
permanent; ‘it abideth in you.’ It is not a fitful emotion or wayward
impulse, a rapture of excitement, alternating perhaps with deep
depression. It partakes more of the nature of a calm, constant,
settled conviction. Frames, feelings, fancies, are all fluctuating;
they are like the surface waters of the ocean, agitated by every wind.
But this inward anointing is far down in the still depths beneath. It
"abideth in us;" the same always in its own inherent stillness and
strength, amid whatever tossings its contact with the upper air may
John Calvin on Psalm 87:2: "Here we are taught
that all the excellence of the holy city depended on the free choice
which God had made of it. With this agrees what is stated in Psalm
77:60, 67, that God rejected Shiloh, the tribe of Ephraim, and the
tabernacle of Joseph, that he might dwell in Zion which he loved. The
prophet then points out the cause why God preferred that one place
before all others; and the cause which he assigns is, not the worth of
the place itself, but the free love of God. If it is demanded why
Jerusalem was so highly distinguished, let this short answer be deemed
sufficient, Because it so pleased God."
