… God is love (I John 4:8).

If we are not very much on our guard, we shall be cheated of the Good News. The inestimable comfort of knowing that God is love will be whisked away and we shall be given instead something so poor, unbending and relentless, that, instead of being reassured, we will be repulsed and frightened.

An Infinite Embrace

The unbeliever may easily imagine a better God than the common theology … offers him; but not the lovingest heart that ever beat can even reflect the length and breadth and depth and height of that love of God which shows itself in His Son … The whole history is a divine agony to give divine life to creatures. The outcome of that agony… will be radiant life, whereof joy unspeakable is the flower. Every child will look in the eyes of the Father, and the eyes of the Father will receive the child with an infinite embrace.
