What is God’s love? Many think of it as a big strong rope, a lifeline that God dropped down from heaven, and now we have the privilege of trying to climb it. In other words, God sent Jesus because of His love, and now that He has done His part, the rest is up to us. God has thrown us a rope and now we need to climb ever closer to Him. There are many Christian books that tell you how to climb faster, higher, and with greater success. Many study such books, underline them and then get on with the task of holding on to the rope and clawing ourselves upward to God.
