Heaven Is a World of Love

"In the concluding chapter of Charity and Its Fruits, Jonathan Edwards describes heaven as 'a world of holy love' and 'the paradise of love.' Heaven will be a home filled with love because God is there and 'God is love' (1 John 4:8).

When Christians love one another as Jesus did, the local church family prefigures the glories of our future loving, heavenly existence."

-Alexander Strauch, Leading with Love, pg. 86
