If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in s.--I JOHN iv. 12. 

And he that keepeth His commandments dwelleth in Him, and He in him. And ereby we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He hath given us.--I JOHN iii. 24.

  Abide in me; o'ershadow by Thy love
  Each half-formed purpose and dark thought of sin;
  Quench, ere it rise, each selfish, low desire,
  And keep my soul as Thine, calm and divine.

The Spirit of Love must work the works, and speak the tones, of Love. It cannot exist and give no sign, or a false sign. It cannot be a spirit of Love, and mantle into irritable and selfish impatience. It cannot be a spirit of Love, and at the same time make self the prominent object. It cannot rejoice to lend itself to the happiness of others, and at the same time be seeking its own. It cannot be generous, and envious. It cannot be sympathizing, and unseemly; self-forgetful, and vain-glorious. It cannot delight in the rectitude and purity of other hearts, as the spiritual elements of their peace, and yet unnecessarily suspect them.
