God loves us: not because we are lovable but because He is love; not because He needs to receive but because He delights to give. (C.S. Lewis)
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.” (1 John 4:16 NIV84)
“So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” (ESV)
