God is Love
It’s true. You can tell what belongs to Jesus, it’s all that is good and right and beautiful in the world. Every true act of love, every good happening, each clear bright morning.
Sounds over romantic? What of all the bad things in the world? Earthquakes or illness or meanness?
They are the places where love has been rejected – either long ago when sin broke the world, or right here and now as people push out God with selfishness.
But where we open our hearts… God IS love.
The more we hand over to Jesus, the more our eyes are opened to His everyday presence, even in the midst of pain. And the more we let His life flow into ours, the more we get to be LOVE in the world. After all he did say:
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.”
