Our Love for God

Love20God20Poster20 Some writers use the word charity to describe not only Christian love between human beings, but also God’s love for man and man’s love for God. About the second of these two, people are often worried. They are told they ought to love God. They cannot find any such feeling in themselves. What are they to do? The answer is the same as before. Act as if you did. Do not sit trying to manufacture feelings. Ask yourself, ‘If I were sure that I loved God, what would I do?’ When you found the answer, go and do it.
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (1952; Harper Collins 2001) 132.
