God is love. This is true. I have said it before. Without God, love cannot exist. Love finds it’s meaning and is revealed in Christ. It is grace filled, sacrificial, and unconditional. Love leads us to become more alive and less self focused. It creates joy and humility. As we emulate Christ others are drawn into the light with the offering of forgiveness and hope. Walk as children of the light, bringing love into darkness. As a Christian, that’s your job. Your only job. Love God. Love others. Simplify the job search. In love we find peace and joy.
Our lives should be “icons of the incredible abundant and hospitable extravagance of our God,” if we are bearing good fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Everything in your life, whether secular or sacred, can glorify God if you intend it to do so. Carry a light into the darkness, recognize beauty and the wonder of being alive.
