Life and Love

shrine

There is nothing more powerful or everlasting than Life and Love. Both are truly gifts from Almighty God. Job speaks: “The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life (33:4).” I ask how a man who suffered as Job could still love God.

I now understand that true Life can only come from God. True Love can only come from God. When we open our hearts and minds to God’s presence in our lives, we gain a greater understand of God’s Life and Love. We are truly victorious over the sins and trials that plague humanity.

These are the lessons Jesus teaches us. God’s Love cannot be denied; it cannot be deprived of what it does for humanity. Love is Life and Love is joy; there is no evil with Love. Therefore, there can be no evil in Life.

God brings Life and Love to us. When we live in God’s Love and Life, we cannot sin; we cannot destroy or harm each other. Paraphrasing Job, God has made us, and the breath of the Holy Spirit brings us to everlasting Life and Love.
