Herein is love, not that we have loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son as a propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God has loved us in this way, we also ought to love one another
— 1 John 4:10-11
Our burden in offering this CD to the Lord is that, by listening to and enjoying these hymns and spiritual songs, many young people would be touched by the love of God and give themselves to love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and to love all the brothers and sisters, all the members of the Lord's Body.
For the love of Christ constrains us because we have judged this, that One died for all, therefore all died; And He died for all that those who live may no longer live to themselves but to Him who died for them and has been raised.
— 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Paul's goal to please the Lord by living to Him should be our experience. We are constrained by the Lord's love to live no longer to ourselves, but to live to Him. This was Mary's testimony in pouring out all she had on the Lord, so may we also Òpour outÓ all we have upon Him.
