Live your life with love,
following the example of Christ,
who loved us and gave himself for us.
He was a sacrificial offering that smelled sweet to God.

Ephesians 5:2

Love each other like the members of your family.
Be the best at showing honor to each other.

Little children,
let’s not love with words or speech but with action and truth.

Love the LORD your God with all your heart,
all your being, and all your strength.

Deuteronomy 6:5

Because he hath set his love upon me,
therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high,
because he hath known my name.

Psalm 91:14

How precious is thy lovingkindness,
O God! And the children of men take refuge under the shadow of thy wings.

Psalm 36:7

My dear friends,
we must love each other.
Love comes from God,
and when we love each other,
it shows that we have been given new life.
We are now God’s children, and we know him.

1 John 4:7

But if someone loves God,
then they are known by God.

God is love.
The most fundamental essence of God, the very being and person of God,
can be expressed as perfect, infinite, eternal love.
Anyone who believes in God should marvel and rejoice at this knowledge.

  1. I am always inspired and refreshed by your website! On the subject of love, i enjoyed this verse from John. John 13:1b “…having loved His own who were in the world, he loved them to the uttermost.” I appreciate the uttermost love of the Lord for us. Also, I have enjoyed Hymn 34 in the Hymnal.net. In this hymn, the Father knew us and loved us before the foundation of the earth. The same love of the Father towards us keeps us safe and close to His heart. His faithful and unchangeable love towards us is our security. Oh, how we love Him! How we adore Him! Our breath, our sunshine, our all in all! The Great Creator, became our Saviour, and all God’s fullness dwelleth in Him (Hymn 82). May the blessing of His love abound to you today!

    • Aww, Love, so precious. Rachel, Thank you so much for your comment and for sharing your heart. Blessings to you and your family.

  2. A few quotes on Love from “the greatest achievement in life,” my free ebook on comparative mysticism:

    “The soul lives by that which it loves rather than in the body which it animates. For it has not its life in the body, but rather gives it to the body and lives in that which it loves.” St. John of the Cross C

    Love your neighbor like something which you yourself are. For all souls are one. Each is a spark from the original soul and this soul is wholly inherent in all souls, just as your soul is in all members of your body.” Shmelke of Nikolsburg J

    “All that is not One must ever suffer with the wound of Absence, and whoever in Love’s city enters, finds but room for One and, but in Oneness, Union.” Jami I

    “The lamp is different, but the light is the same. Love alone can end their quarrel. Love alone comes to the rescue when you cry for help against their arguments.” Rumi [Mawlana] I

    “Meditate on the divinity within yourself. Drink the nectar of love that continually pours from the heart of God.” Lalla H

    “Spiritual love is different. …it leads to unity with the beloved. This unity in love remains forever and ever, always alive, both within and without, and each moment you live in love. It will swallow you completely until there is no ‘you.’ There is only love.” Amritanandamayi Ma [Amma(chi)] H

    “Even offering three hundred bowls of food three times a day does not match the spiritual merit gained in one moment of love.” Nagarjuna B

  3. God is love, and he who abides in God abides in love…the definition of love is God, and when we are constrained by His love, and experience the sweetness and richness of His faithful love towards us, we spontaneously love Him in return. “Jesus Lord, Your’e my first love, You’re the One I love the best! When my heart is loving You, how I’m filled with Your sweet rest! Lord, I’ve been drawn off by many things, now I turn my heart back, how it sings! I repent of loving other things, Jesus Lord, Your’e my first love!”(a young people’s song…)

    • Yes, Rachel “Jesus Lord, Your’e my first love, You’re the One I love the best!” Thank you so much for sharing your heart.
