Epistle to the Romans Theme of Love Quotes

According to Paul's letter to the Romans, God's love is the bomb diggity. It's all-encompassing, never-ending, and enduring. In fact, he loves us so much that he'd let his son die for us. Yeah, he's pretty into us—but he still gets annoyed with his people sometimes. Maybe it was something they did? Oh, right. Turning their backs on Jesus. That is high on God's list of pet peeves and will get you cut off from the divine love pretty quickly.
