1 Corinthians 15:1-2
Now I am reminding you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you indeed received and in which you also stand. Through it you are also being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
God is always ready to save us because God is love…and God IS. God is totally present in each moment of our lives and is therefore ready to save us and love us always. That’s the gospel that St. Paul was preaching to the Corinthians and it’s the same gospel he’s preaching to us today. Are we “holding fast to the word” that St. Paul is preaching…or are we turning from God and choosing ways that are not helping us become our true selves? If we receive the gospel (Good News of God’s unconditional love) and allow it to transform us…then we are in the process of being saved (being made whole!) It is good news that God is always ready to love us when we mess up. What else would a God of Love do?
