We See This Love by the Fruits of It - John Bunyan
Though the love that is in Him is essential to His nature, and can vary no more than God himself: yet we see not this love but by the fruits of it, nor can it otherwise be discerned. 'Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us' (1 John 3:16). We must then betake ourselves to the discoveries of this love.
