61 ◄ Previous Page Home Chapter Index Next Page ► Chapter 8a The Fruit of Infinite Love – Part 1 Having devoted a number of chapters to our search for a deeper understanding of God and His grace, we now turn our attention to God’s love - bearing in mind that God’s grace is in fact one of the very brightest facets of God’s love . (DA677:2) It is our special privilege to live in a universe that is governed by love , where love is the ruling principle and the controlling power. (SD49.5, OHC73.3) The law of self-renouncing love is the law of life for earth and heaven. (RC15.4) This love is pure love ; it is not a “strong, fiery, impetuous passion,” or a “fitful feeling,” but a calm, deep, abiding, holy and living principle. (AA516.1; AH50.1; 51.2) The absolute truth assures us that this form of purest love is the very cornerstone and foundation of life: Love is life. (COL258.3)
