Love - God to Man

I knew My love for thee; therefore I created thee, have engraved on thee Mine image and revealed to thee My beauty.

Bahá’u’lláh, Hidden Words, Arabic 3

By the life of God! A single drop of the ocean of His love is more profitable unto thee than the earth and that which is thereupon, because this will vanish and perish, but that drop of love will remain eternally and everlasting in the worlds of God.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v3, p. 669

I have utmost love for thee and thy family for thou servest me -- how can I be offended at you? Be assured and happy.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v1, p. 118

Know thou that, verily, the eye of favors is directed to thee and is beholding thee with a divine glance, so that thou mayest, with clear eyes, see the lights of the Kingdom upon the horizon. Remember, at all times, this great favor and thank thy Lord and supplicate to Him every day.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v1, p. 132

The message of the holy, divine Manifestations is love; the phenomena of creation are based upon love; the radiance of the world is due to love; the well-being and happiness of the world depend upon it. Therefore, I admonish you that you must strive throughout the human world to diffuse the light of love.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 336

The spiritual love of God maketh man pure and holy and clotheth him with the garment of virtue and purity. And when man attacheth his heart wholly to God and becometh related to the Blessed Perfection, the divine bounty will dawn. This love is not physical, nay, rather, it is absolutely spiritual.
