"Electing love is ultimate love. If God loved us because he found something better in us, then we’d always be afraid of losing his love. And we’d never find his love a total miracle. But God does not say, 'I love you because you are serviceable to me' or 'I love you because you are more humble than others.' He says, 'I love you simply because I love you.' That is perfect love. This understanding is a fountain of endless praise and gratitude and thanksgiving."
