Jay Adams on God’s requirements for the Christian

Love for God and ones neighbor constitutes the sum of Gods requirements for the Christian. The man who loves needs no counseling. Love cements relationships between God and man and man and man. While love attracts, fear repels. When love gives, lust grabs. What love builds, hatred destroys. With love communication flourishes; with resentment it withers. Love is the ultimate answer to all the problems of living with which the Christian counselor deals. Love therefore is the goal. (Jay Adams The Christian Counselors Manual p 141).
