Christian evangelist Joel Osteen has been cited as an inspiration for many people around the world. Every week, Osteen speaks of love from his church in Houston.

Here are 10 memorable statements Joel Osteen has made about love:

2. In an interview with The Christian Post, Osteen advises that Christ's love is a gift. "Salvation and Christ's love is a gift. You don't earn it. You've got to receive that gift."

3. Writing on his website, Osteen advises that love comes from how we treat others. "Love is seen in our actions. The world does not need to hear another sermon nearly as much as it needs to see us being good to people."

4. Osteen tells us love is all about giving. "Love prompts us to give of ourselves, our time, our abilities and resources."

5. "The Bible tells us that God is love and the world will know that we are His followers by the love we show. Giving is what shows our love."

7. "Love is a perfectly good word so don’t be afraid to use it."

8. "Jesus said that more than anything else love will be the way that the world knows the disciples of Christ."

9. "One way we can show love is by giving others room to make mistakes."

10. In his bestselling book, "Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential," Osteen talks of how we should act on God's love. "When God puts love and compassion in your heart toward someone, He's offering you an opportunity to make a difference in that person's life. You must learn to follow that love. Don't ignore it. Act on it. Somebody needs what you have."
