Jesus, Beautiful Jesus

Love for people doesn't come from gazing at their loveliness. That would be conditional. No...love comes from gazing at Jesus Christ and His love for you.

"We love because He first loved us."

I wanted to type this before it left me.

You are hearing the Spirit speaking there, boy-o.

All that we "do" comes from responding to His extravagant, overwhelming love. It looks like us but it's His Spirit in us. "Christ's love controls us..."
