    Love quotes by:    

First John 3:16 shows that true love is climaxed by our being willing to lay down our lives for fellow believers.

    Author: Theodore Epp

Romantic love is blind to everything except what is lovable and lovely, but Christ's love sees us with terrible clarity and sees us whole. Christ's love so wishes our joy that it is ruthless against everything in us that diminishes our joy. The worst sentence Love can pass is that we behold the suffering which Love has endured for our sake, and that is also our acquittal. The justice and mercy of the judge are ultimately one.

    Author: Frederick Buechner

To be commanded to love God at all, let alone in the wilderness, is like being commanded to be well when we are sick, to sing for joy when we are dying of thirst, to run when our legs are broken. But this is the first and great commandment nonetheless. Even in the wilderness - especially in the wilderness - you shall love him.

    Author: Frederick Buechner

Turn around and believe that the good news that we are loved is better than we ever dared hope, and that to believe in that good news, to live out of it and toward it, to be in love with that good news, is of all glad things in this world the gladdest thing of all.

    Author: Frederick Buechner

Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we expect it to be but as it is--is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love.

Love is the only thing in which we can retaliate with God. If God be angry with us, we must not be angry again; if He chide us, we must not chide Him again; but if God loves us, we must love Him again. There is nothing in which we can answer God again, but love. We must not give Him word for word, but we must give Him love for love.

We may force our Lord to punish us, but we will never have to force Him to love us. That's His nature.

    Author: Thomas Watson

Love is the only fire that is hot enough to melt the iron obstinacy of a creature's will.

    Author: Alexander MacLaren

It was a deep true thought which the old painters had, when they drew John as likest to his Lord. Love makes us like.

    Author: Alexander MacLaren

Logically, faith comes first, and love next; but in life they will spring up together in the soul; the interval which separates them is impalpable, and in every act of trust, love is present; and fundamental to every emotion of love to Christ is trust in Christ.

    Author: Alexander MacLaren

You can always give without loving, but you can never love without giving.

    Author: Amy Carmichael

In biblical thinking, genuine love exists only when good works are done in a context where God rather than the doer gets the credit.
