Jesus prayed to His Father saying, “I made known to them your name and I will make it known, that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them.” Jn_17:20-26
It’s ALL centered on Love! God’s love for Jesus, Jesus’ love for us, and our love for Him. The tricky part then, is loving one another. Loving the one who could care less about you. Loving the one who repulses you. Loving the one who despises you to the extent of hurting. God loves them all, and so we are called to do the same. Tough stuff, beloved. But I always remember that quote from someone that says, “We don’t have to like them, just love them.” And maybe it just easier to say – “Just don’t hate them.” Love – a big concept for such a little word! But that’s what will get us to heaven, now and forever!
