The day will come when, after harnessing the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of Love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. -Teilhard De Chardin
Do not underestimate the energies of Love. Love holds the power to accomplish great good, however, if handled incorrectly, it also has the potential for great destruction.
What does it mean to Love well?
We have been given the perfect picture of LOVE embodied in the person Jesus Christ. Study the life of Jesus, and you will become a better Lover. Let us be students of Love. Jesus teaches us to:
- Love God with all that you are. Love God with all of your being. (Matthew 22:37-38)
- Love others as you love yourself. Love the same. Love equally. (Matthew 22: 39)
- Love when it doesn’t make sense. Love your enemies. Love those who have hurt you. Love those who you don’t like. Love those who don’t like you. (Matthew 5:43-48)
Heavenly Father, You are LOVE. Abide in us; and perfect your Love in us. Holy Spirit, teach us how to rightly love you, ourselves, and others. Show us where and how to harness the power of Love in our lives. Shape our hearts to reflect your Divine Love in our homes, workplaces, and relationships. Amen.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. 1 John 4:7-12
