Indulge my thoughts for a short while as you take this trip with me;
Thought 1: I am still completely clueless when it comes to love not because I haven’t experienced it instead I believe the reason for my cluelessness is that with humans love always feels so incomplete. I know God is love and since we were made in his image (this is scary to me…)that should mean that we are the image of love from whence cometh my question if I am a splitting image of God who is love, I dread to ask, do you see love when you see me? If the answer is no, I am forced to look deep within myself and find out just how much of God I reflect then. Hold this thought.
Thought 2: Just recently, I read a book and the intense purity of the love story made a hole in my heart and tore at my emotions. I realized that only radical love can be strong enough to convict the broken. What do I mean by RADICAL LOVE? Very simple…the Hosea kind of love (Hosea 3: 1-5)…totally devoid of logical explanation. When you can explain reasonably explain why you love someone, find out if you truly love that person. Ever wondered why God loves you, because there is absolutely no reason for him to yet he does. Eloquent convincing words about our faith or logical arguments will not to the trick when it comes to soul winning, especially a soul that has been deeply impaired. Only love will do the trick.
Thought 3: Well I guess this means that it is not in our place to refuse to love even when logic says this person should not be a beggar as he or she is fit enough. Love means forgetting all reason and deciding to love anyway. This definitely helps clear up my perception of unconditional love. Truth is, many times as we give unconditional love a new meaning to suit us and sadly we make it lose its essence.
I will conclude by repeating my question; If God is love and I was made in his image then I was made in love’s image and I dread to ask, do you see love when you see me?
