Live to Love

God never rejects…but always redeems.

Psalm 34:19

The Lord is close to the broken-hearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed.

We hate to fail.

We are taught from childhood that the objective is to win, win, win…at all costs.

We must defeat the opposition.

But Jesus says the objective is to love, love, love…at all costs.

He says the top priority is to love God and your neighbor as yourself.

He takes it a step further: We must love our enemies!

Jesus says that instead of winning…your life’s mission should be to extend love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion. 

When we actually join the so-called loser, the outcast, the one who is suffering…we know that Christ is near to us because those are the people that he spent his time with.

It is also when we are at the end of our ropes…that God is there waiting to embrace us.

This is the place where we let go of our agendas so that we might allow God to begin transforming us and taking us to greater heights than we could ever imagine.
