Why do we love God?

from Spurgeon's sermon, "LOVE'S LOGIC"

"We love him because he first loved us." - 1 John 4:19.

A sense of the love of God to us is the main cause of our love
to him. When we believe, know, and feel that God loves us,
we, as a natural result, love him in return.

In proportion as our knowledge increases, our faith strengthens,
and our conviction deepens that we are really beloved of God; we,
from the very constitution of our being, are constrained to yield
our hearts to God in return.

Where there is fervent love to God there is set up a holy familiarity
with God, and from this flow satisfaction, delight, and rest.
