“What price now those who say that the Old Testament God is a grim, harsh God? Bathe in the sunshine of these promises. Look at Jeremiah 31:12. Parched soul, write your name above this one, and discouraged one, take Jeremiah 31:16  from the Lord, and smile again!”

(Rev James Philip, Notes on Jeremiah 31:10-22, Gardenstown Church, Monday 6th August 1956)
