Love. L O V E. It seems an effortless word. Without it, it was all for nothing. Without it, His death was in vain. Without it, we are all dead.
There is a battle ongoing right now. And while we are unable to see it raging, some may feel its effects rippling through the atmosphere. Some are able to recognize its evidence thundering among the lives of the living (or... dying).
Read Revelations. Or don’t. But I recently had a revelation myself.
It stunned me to the point of disbelief (almost). Had I really never understood? The battle, this fight between good and evil. The ultimate victory of the Light against the darkness. What is it all for? Angels fighting among their fallen. Healings and miracles that followed when the world lost a Messiah but gained a Savior. There must be a reason. And something I had known all along occurred to me, only I never really knew.
GOD LOVES US.
It is all because He LOVES us.
L O V E. This is what it’s all about. See, this love, it can heal brokenness. Love will atone for sin. See, this love, it can deliver a nation. This love is designed from its very nature to bring sanctification to its beholders at its appropriate time. And this love is made for saving a people.
How I wish to convey the love of my Jesus, oh, that the reason for God’s atonement may never be in vain, LOVE. I pray for an uncommon love that unbelievers may find and ask, what is this?
Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. - 1 Peter 3:8.
Love has covered my sins. I will never be able to repay what has been done for me, but I will die trying (and loving).
