Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

God does not just have and practice love; He is love itself. His whole being is love. He is a fire of love that is red-hot and blazing, both in heaven and on earth. He is a sea of love that is constantly flowing over everything. He has shown Himself, in particular, as an inexpressibly loving God of people. He loved us even before we existed. He loved us from eternity, and had already decided in eternity to pour all His sweet love over us. He created us, and when we fell into sin and became His enemies, He did not take away His love. Instead, He gave us His only-begotten Son on our behalf. -- C.F.W. Walther, *God Grant It!* p. 287,288
