In this is love:
not that we have loved God, but that he loved us
and sent his Son as expiation for our sins. (1 Jn 4:10)
We have all sorts of definitions of love, don’t we? Dictionaries, thesauruses, blogs, et cetera, will all tell us what love is all about.
You want the real definition of love?
Look at the crucifix.
There, you see love in action.
God said that He loved us and sent His Son.
His Son said He loved us and gave His life for us.
That’s all the proof we should ever need.
FAITH ACTION: Hold a crucifix in your hand (or look at one on your wall) and consider the great love that God has for you. How can you return that love?
