Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love. Ephesians 6:24 NIV
They had never managed to date each other before. They had always been good friends. But when her marriage started going bad, she needed the comfort of her buddy. Now she had a little baby to care for. But her friend loved her child too. It looked like they would finally get together. But then, while she was going through her divorce, his work too him far away. He called her at first. But after months of being away, he met someone else and the phone calls ended. Her love-life was dying. She was sadly left wondering why. What do we know of undying love?
Human love will have its failures. When it comes to God though, love changes its qualities. We will never understand it fully as long as we inhabit our earthly state. But the Bible hints towards this love far above ours. Human love is capable of amazing selflessness and extremely powerful sensations. It can drive us far beyond all other human resolves. Just think of the love a mother has for her newborn baby or passionate young-love. But when we set our love on the Divine, then our love can take on infinite qualities. Just devote our love to Jesus Christ, and we have chosen to love the One who loved us enough to die for us. Return His love and we will come to know the love of the Father who made us and wants to be with us forever! Could we pray today to be filled with, and enveloped in an undying love affair with our Savior?
Strengthen our love, we pray, into an undying love for You!
