God Is Love

Colossians 1:16-17

All things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

We all start our lives believing we are at the center of the universe. Unfortunately, some never really break from that delusion. Everybody’s ego lobbies for the position that everything revolves around it and its satisfaction. Dying to this…letting go of this stance…is the process through which we follow Christ and find our true selves. It’s the path of letting go of all things…not renouncing them but not becoming attached to anything. We are called to let go of our ego’s desires…so God’s desires can rise within us. Jesus showed us the way…by being present to everyone and everything in the spirit of service. He showed us how to be forgiving and compassionate and at the same time to work for justice through peace. For God…Christ is at the center of all things and holds all things together as one…the broken, the sinners, the saints and all creation. That includes you and me. This is truly Good News.
