by Scott D. Hendricks
For those who are well-disposed, the revelation of God in and of itself, even before the proof drawn from his works, suffices to demonstrate not only his providence, but also his fervent love toward us. For he does not simply watch over us, but also loves us; he ardently loves us with an inexplicable love, with an impassible yet fervent, genuine, indissoluble love, a love that is impossible to extinguish.
~ St. John Chrysostom
