Nothing is so fundamental to the Christian journey as knowing and feeling that we are loved.  Nothing.  This is the basis for the whole of what it means to be a Christian.  There is no other foundation on which we can build.  It is from the experience of God’s love that we know the grace of God and live out every other dimension of our Christian faith.

The above is a quote from The Voice of Jesus, by Gordon T. Smith.

Do you agree with it?

Is this what we’ve been taught in our churches?

Is this what we are teaching the next generation?
