A reflection on Revelation 2:1-4,
Christ’s letter to the church in Ephesus,
based on 1 Corinthians 12:31 – 13:3; 14:1
God is love, and
the surest mark of His children is love:
Without love, the greatest spiritual gifts are meaningless.
Without love, wisdom and knowledge are worthless.
Without love, all our efforts, all our accomplishments are empty noise.
Love is the most excellent way to live.
As we grasp for all the best of life,
we too often ignore its most precious possibility: a
transforming relationship with the Living God.
As we humbly receive His love,
we love Him in return.
As we love Him,
we grow in our love for His children.
In the beautiful, perfect Kingdom of our Father,
love is the coin of the realm,
Love will never lose its value.
