The Fire of Love!
“I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled! I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished!
God became one of us to bring real peace to the world. However, the Fire of Love had to consume false love!
True Christian Love is modeled on Jesus. This is the love that is willing to die for the beloved!
The Fire of the Cross!
There seems to have been no other way than the Crucifixion to destroy the lie of the status quo! The life, and the message of Jesus, went against how authority functioned.
To eliminate the message, the messenger had to be eliminated!
This action by those who wanted to destroy the messenger failed!
True Love Rose From The Dead!
We must allow that true love to reign in our hearts. Even if we are ostracized, if we allow this love to reign, we will have peace.
We have the example Maximilian Kolbe! In the Nazi Concentration Camp true love reign when he gave his life for the beloved fellow prisoners.
The Fire of Love at work in the World!
We probably will not have to be as heroic as Maximilian, but life will give us challenges that we will have to decide between convenience and true love!
May We Always Choose True Love!
