God is love
Love originates in God, for God is love;
His very nature is love. Love makes us one with Him and
others. It is a gift that we must accept gratefully. When we
love god we love our neighbours too. Thus the love of the
neighbour becomes a characteristic feature of the love of the
God So he says: “What I command you is to love one another.” (Jn
Love that comes from God must enable man to
love and enable him to abide in it throughout his live. We have
to bear rich fruit that will last (Jn. 15:14,16). That means we
have to do our duties and live in this world in such a way that
everything we do should be the outcome of love. Our actions
must manifest God’s infinite love for us. Love should be a
criterion of our deeds. The gospel tells us to love God with
all our heart and soul (Mt. 22:37,38). That is, we have to
respond to the inner promptings of God. For that we have to
perform works of love persistently. God’s work must be our
life’s work. We must persevere in doing good unto the end (Mt.
Jesus’ love is an abiding love. It is
unconditional. An unconditional love demands unconditional
response. What is the quality of our love for Jesus and for our
Let us remember:
- God loves
us; we should be happy for we are loved.
- God wants
us to love one another: Our life must be a demonstration of
love Jesus showed us.
- God is
love; we have to be heralds of His love in the world; we
have to love our brother because God loves him.
God has loved us with an eternal love. To
be God’s children we have to abide by that love. Then God’s joy
will be in us, and our joy will be complete (Jn. 15:11).
