“How I love that old cross,
Where the dearest and best,
For a world of lost sinners was slain.”
-George Bernard, “The Old Rugged Cross”
“God sent His Son,
They called Him Jesus.
He came to love, heal, and forgive.
He lived and died
To buy my pardon.
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!”
-Gloria and Bill Gaither, “Because He Lives”
“While we’ll get to experience the magnitude of God’s love in eternity,
I’m not sure we’ll ever understand it, and I’m ok with that,
as long as I can participate in it… If we are so in awe of God’s love,
we won’t try to find our meaning in anything else…
We need a love bigger than us.”
“It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers.
The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them…
Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for who they are, not for what they say.”
“Judgment is never right without love.”
