We want love—to love and to be loved. We were made for this. But we have little idea of what it really is or where to look for it. Jesus Christ came for this, to show us what #love is and where to find it.
The best and broadest appeal that one can make to others is the #Bible and the Bible alone. All others include human opinions and conclusions that are open to discussion. Religion is divisive; the Bible unifies. Its presence rises above man’s smallness to sweep everyone into the immensity of divine #love and purpose.
Academic works may be dry and detached from the warmth of the Scriptures because they have missed the love of God and the mission of Christ in the world to save sinners.
“… the very reason the law of Christ existed—just as the law of Moses existed—was to create a community of love (see on [Gal] 5:14).” —Don Garlington, Shorter Commentary on Galatians, 174.
If God’s love is the principal thing, then let his love be the framework through which we see all things and though which we speak and act.
To have God as Father means to love Jesus Christ and find a permanent place in our hearts for his word, Jn 8.37, 42.
We talk a lot about love of the truth. Let us speak equally of the truth of love. The world needs both.
