Gerhard and Walther

Whoever loves God has to hate what God hates.—Johann Gerhard, Schola Pietatis III:115.

Love reveals one’s heart to the beloved and expects every good from Him. If we love God, we will have a joyful confidence in Him. Praying to Him will be our heart’s desire and in all trials we will call to Him, in childlike faith, “Abba, dear Father!”—C. F. W. Walther, God Grant It!, p. 493
