QUOTE - Mike Cosper

“As important as legal language and clear facts are, God knows we need our imagination to be captured by truth. We need to be won over by the surpassing beauty of Christ, the utterly compelling glory of God. We must see these as a greater good and a better hope than all the promises of our idols and daydreams.

So God doesn’t merely present the gospel to us in a contract. He gives us a wonderfully creative book in the Bible and invites us to engage with our imagination.”
Enduring love is the true sign of...
QUOTE - The Sower Magazine

“For many years I had read this chapter and applied it in the sense that these characteristics of love were something that I needed to ‘do’. I would read that ‘love is patient’ and I would try to be more patient. I would read that ‘love is not irritable’ and I would try not to be irritated. If I found myself being impatient with someone I would think to myself ‘I need to have more patience’. I interpreted this chapter to be a guide on how I needed to behave...But this way of thinking about it never helped me achieve what the chapter describes: Love NEVER fails. What I missed was that Paul is describing what actions result when love is the motivation. Paul’s core message is about motivation...understanding that we are dealing with motivation is the key to understanding how it can be that “love never fails.”
QUOTE - Paul Gardner

“Love will never be gone. Rather it will simply continue, as now, but in a world where the sin that wars against love is altogether removed. Whereas the gifts are “nothing” without love, love does not need the gifts for full revelation”
QUOTE - Anthony C. Thiselton

“Love will remain the interpersonal currency of heaven.”
QUOTE - Anthony C. Thiselton

“We know in fragmentary ways, and we prophesy part by part”
QUOTE - Charles Goodhart

“When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure.”
QUOTE - Charles Goodhart

“we optimize for what we measure, and when we choose the wrong measurement then we get the wrong behaviour.”
QUOTE - Karl Barth

“Love is the future eternal light shining in the present.”
QUOTE - Paul Gardner

“Love is an activity, the essential activity, of God himself, and when [people] love either him or their fellow [person] they are doing (however imperfectly) what God does.”
