Love in Christ decays not, nor can be tempted so to do by anything that happens, or that shall happen hereafter, in the object so beloved. But as this love at first acts by, and from itself, so it continueth to do until all things that are imperfections, are completely and everlastingly subdued.

The reason is, because Christ loves to make us comely, not because we are so (Eze 16:9-14).

-John Bunyan ,The Saints’ Knowledge of Christ’s Love
