Writing to free the prisoner of one idea, crossing the bridge of paradox to truth, serving the legacies of Chesterton and Lewis who defended their faith in Christ

Enduring love…

 

BelliniMadonnaChild

It is not insignificant that Jesus says: “He who has endured to the end is the one that will be saved.” (Matthew 24) and again, “knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.…” (James 1:4-5) We don’t endure what is fun, easy, convenient or comfortable. We associate those things today with our idea of “love”. But such is not God’s idea of love…and he is love. So what is lacking on our part in understanding what love really is? James 1:5 tells us: wisdom. But we are not lost on our own in this dilemma, God is generous and He will give us the wisdom (if we ask for it) to know what this enduring love looks like and how to live it.  

“Love endures all things” but we must also endure what real love is.
