God Is Love



He that loveth not, knoweth not God: for God is love.

1 John 4:8

How splendid is the transcending-beauty of Love when it is revealed from within a believer's heart - where God Is. For only when one can see his brother through the eyes of God, one can see in his brother, the image of God. For only then, one can see compassionately even when faced with bitterness. Only then, one can embrace mercifully even if rejected with wretchedness, and only then, one can give abundantly even when faced with ungratefulness.

Though ironic may be the view of the world regarding love, more dangerous than ironically is the notion of her teaching that there is a proxy to love even in the absence of biblical traditions, morals and accountability. How incomprehensible is the deception in her teaching of the reality of love.

Thus, it is imperative that we are mindful to the hidden danger in worldly views regarding love. Moreover, zealously we must persist on advocating that proxy to love is just a delusion, for there cannot be real love apart from God. Are biblical traditions not the framework of love? Is morality not the essence of love? Even more so, is accountability not the guardian of love? Hence, biblical traditions, morals, and fervent accountability cannot be apart from our reality. Furthermore, they cannot be apart from our awareness of love- Divine Love is the true Reality, for God Is Love.

It is because God so loved the world, the angel of the Lord declared unto Mary and she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
It is because God so loved the world, Jesus, The true God and true man, purchased for us the rewords of eternal life through His Passion.
It is because God so loves the world, Jesus offers Himself, Body and Blood, in the Eucharist so that we may encounter the fullness of the banquet- the foretaste of the Divine banquet we will celebrate with Him to eternity.
