For many, the overwhelming spread of evil will do them in—nothing left of their love but a mound of ashes.
Staying with it—that’s what God requires. Stay with it to the end. You won’t be sorry, and you’ll be saved.
Jesus of Nazareth, Matthew 24: 12-13 (MsgB)
We have three things to do to lead us toward consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love. 1st Corinthians 13: 13 (MsgB)
