Love most magnificent
For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me,
and have believed that I came out from God.
As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you:
continue ye in my love.
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me,
he will keep my words: and my Father will love him,
and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
God’s word reads like a letter from someone who loves us and whom we love, a love letter full of wonderful news. We read it over and over until the pages grow yellowed and thin; we read it until we remember every word—because love is the best gift heaven or earth has to offer.
God gave every human a capacity to love so that we might understand, in some small measure, His love for us. True love makes us willing to sacrifice everything just to be near those we love. If we believe that we have found love on earth, but don’t consider it the most important event in our lives next to finding God, then we have not found love as God created it. On the other hand, if we have truly found love and understand its power, we can comprehend God’s great love for us and for the unredeemed of this world.
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind, and with
all thy strength. . . .
What is life, really, without love?The book is available in both hard copy and Kindle
