Because He First Loved Us

The work of the Holy Spirit is not only to reveal God's love to us but to produce in us love to God in return.

Wherever the Holy Spirit really gives a clear view and deep sense of God's love to us, He, by the same operation of His grace, subdues the enmity of the carnal mind, and produces a genuine and supreme love to God.

[John Angell James]


1 John 4:19 ...We love him, because he first loved us.

Romans 5:5 ... And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 ... But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
