David F. Wells – The Holy-love of God

TGCNE - The Gospel Shaped Life


Holy-love sums up God’s character. It explains the Cross where his love provided what his holiness required. It explains sanctification where his holiness separates us to himself and his love impels us to fulfill the law. It protects us from legalism (holiness without love) and liberalism (love without holiness). And it brings a focus to our private and public worship. Christianity is all about the importance of the hyphen between holy and love.
