This is how God showed his love to us: He sent his one and only Son into the world so that we could have life through him. ― 1st John 4:9
To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us. ― Timothy J. Keller
To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable. ― C.S. Lewis, The Four LovesDoubt thou the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love. ― William Shakespeare, Hamlet
This is how we know what real love is: Jesus gave his life for us. So we should give our lives for our brothers and sisters. ― 1st John 3:16
Where there is love there is life. ―
