We love, because He first loved us
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Love is my religion – I could die for it.
God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.
