Clement’s Praise of Love

“By love have all the elect of God been made perfect; without love nothing is well-pleasing to God.  In love has the Lord taken us to himself.  On account of the Love he bore us, Jesus Christ our Lord gave his blood for us by the will of God; his flesh for our flesh, and his soul for our souls.”

The First Epistle of Clement AD 96
