“All religion is in effect love.
Faith is thankful acceptance,
and thankfulness is an expression of love.
Repentance is love mourning.
Yearning for holiness is love seeking.
Obedience is love pleasing.
Self-denial is the mortification of self-love.
Sobriety is the curtailing of carnal love.”
A.W. Pink, Gleanings from Paul (p.453)
