Ḡя℮@ṫ ℚυ◎тℯ﹩ ◎ᾔ Ḻ◎√ℯ :'"God is Light." "God is Love." That which professes to be light yet lacks love, is not of God; while that which calls itself love, but is not according to light is equally not of God.' — J. Charleton Steen."If the first mark of a true and living church is love, the second is suffering. The one is naturally consequent on the other. A willingness to suffer proves the genuineness of love." — John Stott"A little love has made me willingly study, preach, write, and even suffer..." — Richard Baxter"Wherever the fear of God rules in the heart, it will appear both in works of charity and piety, and neither will excuse us from the other." — Matthew Henry"To love as Christ loves is to let our love be a practical thing and not a sentimental thing." — Sir Charles Villiers Stanford."What we love usually manages to get into our conversation. What is down in the well of the heart will come up in the bucket of the speech." — Vance Havner."Love rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth." — 1 Cor 13:6.

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ : "Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good." (Psalm 34:8, NKJV).
As much as we can taste a natural food and say whether it is tasty or not, our spirit man has the ability to taste a spiritual food that is supplied to it. By the way, because Jesus supplies himself as the spiritual bread of life by which our spiritual life gets sustained by its intake, we have the ability to tell whether he really tastes good after experiencing His eternal and abundant life which he supplies. Once we taste and experience the sweetness of our Lord Jesus, it is hard for us to leave it for anything that the world deceitfully and temporally gives in exchange for it. May the Lord Jesus create in us a craving for Himself to satisfy our spiritual taste buds and to please God through faith in Him.
