Greg Laurie 90x115by Greg Laurie

“If you love me, obey my commandments.”
—John 14:15

What is love? The Beatles recorded the classic song on the subject, “All You Need Is Love,” and then they broke up and sued each other. Various philosophers have expressed opinions on love as well. Plato said that love is a serious mental disease. Oliver Wendell Holmes, who was more optimistic on the subject, said, “Love is the master key which opens the gates of happiness.” Another said, “Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.”
