"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son...." John 3:16a
Is not the greatest gift love? John said we love Him because He first loved us. Jesus, Himself said, they will know you are mine because of your love for each other. The following was written by A. W. Tozer several years ago:
(A radiant Christian love. I want to see a restoration of a radiant Christian love so it will be impossible to find anyone who will speak unkindly or uncharitably about another or to another. This is carefully thought out and carefully prayed through. The devil would have a spasm. He would be so chagrined that he would sulk in his self-made hell for years. There should be a group of Christians with radiant love in this last worn-out dying period of the Christian dispensation, a people so loving that you could not get them to speak unkindly and you could not get them to speak uncharitably.)
I feel Tozer must have known several Christians who displayed such love; but he longed to see it again, and to see it wide spread in the church.
"Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . ." 1 Corinthians 13:6–8a
It's such a privilege to
love! Unconditional love cost us nothing! It's value is
