Gods Eternal Love

Gods Eternal Love

Reflection on the Gospel of
HOLY TRINITY SUNDAY

 

John 3: 16-18

Love – is it an emotion? Choice? Decision? Virtue? Poets, lyricists, playwrights, novelists and even scripture has tried to define love. St. Paul describes love as patient, kind, not envious, boastful or arrogant. It doesn’t insist on its own way, not resentful or irritable. It rejoices in the truth and not in wrong doing. It believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things (1 Cor 13: 4-7)
Yet all of these words will mean absolutely nothing if we haven’t experienced it.  Human beings are created for love. We need to experience love. Without love we will surely die. But there’s a problem, Sin. In our fallen nature we have a misrepresentation of love. We search for lesser and imperfect loves. These loves can never completely satisfy us and we continue to search for true perfect love in hopeless broken people or things.
In today’s gospel we are given an opportunity to truly experience the most perfect love that’s a free gift from God. Love sustains us, it motivates us to be our best. Even in hopeless situations we find hope when we hope for love. God’s perfect love is accessible if we are willing to believe in Christ. We need to be open to experience Christ to experience his love. Experience of Christ is a relationship with him. A relationship requires making time for Christ, following the Commandments rooted in love of God and love of neighbour. It is this love that will ensure we live an enriched life on earth and a joyous eternal life enveloped in divine love. If we choose not to believe in Christ and opt out for lesser, imperfect, temporal loves we opt out of living with God – our source of life. In fact we condemn ourselves to death by choosing a life away from God.
Listen, Christ knocks at the door of your heart ready with his free gift of perfect love, are you ready to let him in? Or are there any terms and conditions?
