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.
We understand that loving doesn’t always mean doing what others want, but doing what serves them best.
Sacrifice is the first act of true love for the church because this is how Christ loved the church.
I want to tell you what God sees when he looks at you, why I love you, and how I hope to encourage you in the midst of our cynical culture.
