Upon reading today's entry in Sacred Space, I was reminded about the eternal life of love. Just as love overcomes all opposition in Jesus resurrection on Easter morning, and love stands in the face of darkness in the book A wrinkle in time by Madeline L'Engle, and love continues to be expressed in this quote I discovered by Julian of Norwich...
"... the love that made him (Jesus) suffer all this - it passes as far beyond all his pains as heaven is above earth. For the passion was a deed done in time by the working of love; but the love is without beginning and is, and ever shall be, without end."
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Where would I be if not for love? Jesus the Christ, who did no wrong, took my place, my sin, my failures that day and washed them away in his faithful sacrifice. Then to think it was not only for me, but for all of us.
This love is what I hold fast to as I wait for the sunrise of Easter morning.
Love like this, if only I could begin to grasp it.
Hold fast, the dawn of love is coming soon.
