God is love. I am not love. I love, but I’m not Love. But God is. So, on Valentine’s Day, if we want love, we have to raise our sights to him.
Love must feed on love. The very soul and life of our love to God is his love to us.
First of all, love is the highest mark of maturity. Therefore, not loving the other members of the church is a sign of our immaturity.
Every love song is a gleam of beauty falling on a jungle of imbecility. The gleams tell us there is a brighter light out there, a glory more glorious than even the glory of earthly loves. There is a story that makes sense of all the stories, even the terrible ones.
When the love of Jesus captivates us, our hearts will naturally, and quite effortlessly, love him first and to love him most.
We simply cannot manufacture character in ourselves, no matter how hard we try. Love is not a to-do-list.
God has been a means to the end of forgiveness.
His standards are the robes of Christ’s righteousness—they literally cannot be higher.
Love that is true love is wrapped in objective truth.
Christian, the Lord knows you are not an asset to the organization.
