Verbatim references:

Et sic de similibus references:

The purpose of man's existence and the reason for his creation is to love God.
Romans:8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

The greatest thing we can do in life is to love God and to be loved by God; which is the bond of perfection.
Colossians:3:14 And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Without love, life becomes completely meaningless, without purpose, empty, a senseless journey of futility without a destination that has any real sense of hope.
1Corinthians:13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become [as] sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

Of Thee, I will sing a song of love in my heart and to Thee I will sing of your ageless song of love and joy, oh Lord.
Proverbs:7:18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
2Corinthians:13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
1John:3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

I do rejoice with a bountiful joy and my heart does overflow with warm feelings of love when I come into Your Presence Oh God.
Nehemiah:8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for [this] day [is] holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

I will sing of Thee, Oh Lord for you are the reason for my life, the ultimate of truths and the gateway to abounding joy and peace.
Psalms:59:16 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.

1Corinthians:16:24 My love [be] with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen. )
