The overcomer is one who gains victory over the prevailing state of things. If then, lack of first love is prevalent, he cannot acquiesce in this, contenting himself with mere outward activity, but in a broken spirit he seeks the Lord, and the Lord is graciously found of him. Nothing is to him like the Lord’s company, as Mary sat at the Lord’s feet in the days of His flesh, and heard His word. Then it is a great joy to know that whatever the darkness around, this “good part” shall not be taken away. Like John, in the night of the Lord’s betrayal, the overcomer is in the consciousness of being loved and nestles in the hiding-place of that love. There alone is responsive affection kindled and nourished.
