When we make contact with electricity we know it. It is the very same when we make contact with God’s love. Contact and reception of His love for us is the forgotten privilege of His people. In this message we explore how to recover this experience.
Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, your name is ointment poured forth; no wonder the maidens love you.
Song of Songs 1:3
Everything which makes man merry, or which inebriates, or causes great elation is not to be compared with His love.
Watchman Nee (1903-1972)
We are to love God for Himself… nothing is more reasonable; nothing is more profitable.
Bernard of Clairvaux (1090 – 1153)
God created us out of a superabundant flow of overflowing love and goodness.
Oswald Chambers (1874-1917)
If a father continues cheerful and carefree while his son is getting into trouble, or if a husband remains unmoved when his wife is in distress, we wonder at once how much love can be in their relationship, for we know that those who truly love are only happy when those whom they love are truly happy also.
J.I. Packer (b.1926)
By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy. If you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.
Socrates (470-399 BC)
Like all truly mystical things, love is rooted deeply and rightly in this world and this flesh.
Katherine Anne Porter (1890-1980)
