Let Go and Live

In the midst of your struggle…know that God’s Love is carrying you.

Luke 21:1-4

Jesus saw some wealthy people putting their offerings into the treasury and he noticed a poor widow putting in two small coins. He said, “I tell you truly, this poor widow put in more than all the rest; for those others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood.”

The widow did not give to God her surplus…she gave to God her all.

Everything she had.

Jesus gave all of himself to show us how to live.

He showed us the path to transformation through letting gonew life through death.

He showed us what unconditional love is.

God is all in.

God’s love is not rationed. It is poured out in never-ending oceans and oceans upon each of us from now to eternity.

This Love does not changeno matter what we do.

Jesus demonstrated God’s Unconditional Love by loving all the way to the cross…and then, while hanging there dying, stating: “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).

Jesus is our example of how to love and how to give our very selves in love to others and all creation.

We are called to love in the same way.

It takes grace to be able to do it…a Grace that is always being poured out.

Even though we fail…it’s good to know that God continues to love us regardless.

Take a few moments to contemplate such a love for us.

God is crazy in love with you!

How will you respond?
