... as if there were not another being in the world ...

“Oh, you are not dealing with trifles when you are dealing with the love of God to you. It is not a spare corner of the heart of God that He gives to you, as you may give a little love to the criminals in the jails, but the great, inconceivably vast heart of God belongs as much to every Christian as if there were not another being in the world for God to love! Even as Jehovah loves His Only-begotten, so does He love each one of His children.”

C. H. Spurgeon, The Treasury of the Old Testament (London, n.d.), III:568.

"God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us." St Augustine of Hippo

"I have loved you with an everlasting love..." Jeremiah 31:3
