“There is no safer and surer way of obtaining a right conception of the nature of Christian love than by making a thorough study of its perfect exemplification in and by the Lord Jesus. When we say a “thorough study,” we mean the taking of a comprehensive survey of all that is recorded of Him in the four Gospels, and not the limiting of ourselves to a few favorite passages or incidents. As this is done, we discover that His love was not only benevolent and magnanimous, thoughtful and gentle, unselfish and self-sacrificing, patient and unchanging, but that many other elements also entered into it. Love could deny an urgent request (John 11:6), rebuke His mother (John 2:4), use a whip (John 2:15), severely upbraid His doubting disciples (Luke 24:25), and denounce hypocrites (Matthew 23:13-33). Love can be stern (Matthew 16:23), yea, angry (Mark 3:5). Spiritual love is a holy thing: it is faithful to God; it is uncompromising toward all that is evil.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “Profiting From The Word of God” by A. W. Pink (1886–1952)
