"I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die."
How Important Is Love?
It is virtually impossible to exaggerate the importance of love. Nothing is more basic to true spirituality that this singular virtue. Nothing is more central to Christian living. At the very heart of authentic discipleship is love. Without love, we are nothing.
Love meets every requirement of the divine standard.
Love is not a secondary matter—it is a primary matter. Love is never incidental. It is fundamental.
