What’s love got to do with it? Love is the controlling force of the Christian life. Love is what leads us to see one another in a new way, through Christ who reconciles us to God and has made us ambassadors of his reconciling love. Love is how it started–”for God so loved the world”–and love is how it’s going–”the love of Christ controls us.” That is, at least, how it’s supposed to be going. There are areas in each of our lives where fear has wrestled control from love, making our message one that ruptures rather than reconciles. Will you join me in asking the Spirit to show us where those areas are and to lead us to see every person through the lens of love?
