God himself says: I have loved thee with an everlasting love . . . He is our Savior; that is something that must never be forgotten. And it is as our Savior, that he enters into partnership with us. In fact, it is by that very partnership that he saves us. He comes to us full of perfect knowledge and unlimited love. He knows exactly what we are, and he knows exactly what our life will be. He knows all our defects and weaknesses, those that are natural to us, those that are the result of circumstances, and those that are the result of our own sins. He knows all that has happened or will happen to us. He knows all that might have been done for us or by us, but which has been neglected. He knows all our mistakes and all our sins; He knows all our misfortunes and all our miseries. He knows all these things in advance, but being the perfect Lover, he comes with the power of God to heal all these ills. He is perfectly prepared to repair our life completely if we do not prevent him.
