PostSubject: How does love bring us peace?   Wed Nov 20, 2013 5:31 pm

God created us to express a love that is unconditional, pure, selfless, forgiving and sacrificial.  This love therefore is the inner most desire of our heart; and without it we will never find peace.  This love is true love. It is not a feeling or emotion; it is a spirit.  This spirit is God. To express this love, therefore is to express God’s spirit. This spirit was perfectly expressed by Jesus (who is God in human form), when he suffered the most painful and shameful death on the cross, so that, we, who betrayed him and hurt him by our sins, may have eternal life. In other words, he the victim, compensated for the offenses we committed against him by sacrificing his life. Through his sacrifice he rekindles his spirit of love within us (which we had rejected through our sin) so that we can love one another as he has loved us (John 13:34-35), quietly bear each other’s burdens, die to self in order to bring healing to those who hurt and betray us, forgive without any limit (Matt. 18:22), bind each other’s wounds and be a servant to others. Since this love is unconditional, it is eternal; and since it is eternal, it brings us eternal life.
