Is there love without love for God?

Feb 17, 2008
To Love, we must love God. God is the Spirit of love. Therefore, to love others, we must first accept God’s spirit; and to accept his spirit, we must love Him. Love has no place for hate, because pure love hates no one. We can, therefore, never love God, if we hate even one person. To love God, is to express the love, Jesus expressed for us on the cross. Our love, therefore, must be pure, unconditional, total, selfless and sacrificial. Furthermore, we should avoid sin, out of pure love for God and our fellow human beings, and not out of fear of punishment.
