Ephesians 5:1-2

"Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us
and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice
to God for a sweet-smelling aroma."

This is the real aim of religion,
to love God without restraint,
and never to rest until you have been
united with Him forever.

-Richard Wumbrand

I love the quote! That aspect of being in the presence of the Lord forever has been something on my mind recently, as i recently joined the worship "team" at church & it's been so exciting to praise His name with a group, and just gets me so thrilled for the day when our praise will never stop! God bless you!
