5. "We ought to remind ourselves and our kids about the Author of all love: not Hollywood or Hallmark cards, but God Himself."

6. In the preface to a reprint of his book, "Loving God," Colson wrote of the people who have discovered how to love God again since reading the book. "Some became believers; others discovered the true meaning of being a Christian to love God and to love one another."

7. It is vital to apply God's love, wrote Colson in his book, "Loving God." "But we will only be weak and stumbling believers and a crippled church unless and until we truly apply God's word-that is, until we truly love Him and act on that love."

8. "Exactly what Jesus talks about when He says that if you really love one another you will give yourself for others. This is agape love; it is self-denying and self-giving in its totality."
