"WHAT WONDROUS LOVE IS THIS"

 
"As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you." —John 15:9
 

The love of the Father for the Son Jesus is immensely powerful. God's love for Jesus is explosive, powerful, creative, healing, regenerative, wild, unmeasurable, and beyond human control. Furthermore, Jesus loves each of us with that same love; He loves us "as the Father has loved" Him (Jn 15:9). If we truly experienced and realized how fully God loves us, we would be gloriously transformed. "For our God is a consuming fire" (Heb 12:29).

God's love has unfathomable power, like an avalanche that sweeps up all in its path and carries it all along. God, in His wondrous mercy, humbles Himself so that we might have the possibility to relate to His love. How else could we explain that the love of God, powerful enough to create a universe, could be contained in a small wafer of bread, the Holy Eucharist?

Receive His love. "Live in His love" (Jn 15:10).

 
Prayer: Father, may we come to "grasp fully...the breadth and length and height and depth of Christ's love, and experience this love" (Eph 3:18-19). Empower us to love those in our life with Your all-consuming love.
Promise: "All this I tell you that My joy may be yours and your joy may be complete." —Jn 15:11
Praise: Sheila is rendered speechless when before the Blessed Sacrament in Eucharistic Adoration.
