Our love is not the cause of His, but His is the cause of ours; and it is not merely His loving us, but the shedding it abroad in our hearts by His Spirit, which draws out our love to Him; for though He loved us, yet if He had not some way or other manifested it to us, and overcome our hearts with it, we should still have remained enemies to Him; but His giving us the sense and perception of it in our hearts, is what has drawn us to Himself, and will keep us there.  (John Gill; 1697-1771)
