In the Old Testament, God often speaks of love. In Hosea, “When Israel was a [a]child, I loved him, And out of Egypt I called My son. (1:1)” this is Divine Love that only God can give. We are God’s creation; we are His children. We are called to Love. When we love, we find no limitations on our life and none on our actions for it is at this time that we are indeed God’s perfect children.
Jesus reminds us that Love is all that matters; it is the only commandment. We cannot walk on God’s path of life without recognizing His Love and our commitment to His Divine Life. Our miracle is God’s Grace in our very core. It is the basis of God’s Love for us, our Love of God, and our love for each other. This is the shining light of Love; this is the shining light of our lives.
There is no other existence than living with God’s Love. All other imitators are falsehoods. They cannot last with the test of time nor the test of trial. They are not the Divine Principle of Love that God gives us, and Jesus invites us to share. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. (Psalm23:4)” I walk on the path of God’s Divine Love.
