Our Christian faith is truly an incredible, amazing, astounding, thing!
Of all the religions in all the world, which among them can claim the truths we as Christians profess?
The following quote brings home that most wonderful of truths: truly, we have a God who loves each of us in such a personal way!
I will serve you, because I came ‘to serve and not to be served.’
I am a friend, and a brother and sister, and a mother;
I am everything, and all I want is an intimate friendship with you.
I have become poor for you,
a beggar for you,
been crucified for you,
buried in a sepulchre for you.
In Heaven I intercede before God the Father for you;
and on earth I am His ambassador to you.
You are everything to me, brother, co-heir, friend.
What more do you want?
St John Chrysostom
Sometimes when we are going through many trials and difficulties, we forget how close the Lord really is to us. How much He cares for us, how much He has done for us.
Jesus is Love in action! He has proven His love.
Can we prove our love for Him?
