THE REVOLUTION OF LOVE

 
"What we have seen and heard we proclaim in turn to you so that you may share life with us. This fellowship of ours is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ." —1 John 1:3
 

God became man. People could hear, see, and touch Him, and thereby could relate to Him as a human being. After Jesus ascended bodily into heaven, we can now have an even more deeply personal and intimate relationship with Him by the Holy Spirit, through the Church, and especially through the Eucharist.

When we begin to grasp and experience "the breadth and length and height and depth of Christ's love" (Eph 3:18), His love becomes our life (see 1 Jn 1:1-3; Ps 63:4). His love compels us (2 Cor 5:14) to proclaim the good news of Jesus (1 Cor 9:16) and "make disciples of all the nations" (Mt 28:19). His love leads us even to lay down our lives for the Lord and for each other (Jn 15:13; 1 Jn 3:16). Because of this love, we become another Mary at the foot of the cross, Mary Magdalene at Jesus' tomb, and John at Pentecost. God's incarnate love has changed our lives and become our lives.

Are you ready for a Christmas which will be a catalyst for a revolution of love in your life? The love you receive in this Christmas season may result in evangelization, reconciliation, service, discipleship, Calvary, Pentecost, and heaven. Are you ready for true love and the real Christmas?

 
Prayer: Father, may I receive Your love as never before.
Promise: "The disciple who had arrived first at the tomb went in. He saw and believed." —Jn 20:8
Praise: John was the only apostle who stood at the foot of Jesus' cross.
