Love is a beautiful mystery. We cannot predict the way of an eagle in the sky and neither can we predict the unfolding of a love story. The overarching love story is God’s love for His creation. His love is the glue that holds this universe together. God’s love is remarkable, to say the least. When the Son of God walked this earth, people were attracted to Him. From the beginning Jesus struck them as unusual, even though they could not put a finger on it. The Apostle John elaborated on the mystery of Jesus in his letters (1 John 1:1):
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.”
People were clearly touched when they met Jesus walking the roads of Israel, and we still wonder about Him today. How God loves is a strange concept to the human mind. – Who would come up with the plan of turning God into a human being? This is something that completely blows my mind. How does He get these unusual ideas? Thankfully, we do not need to understand God to love Him back. All we need to do is open our hearts and receive His love.
Let the love of God sweep you up, embrace you, heal you, carry you, and reform you – one day at a time – and the world around you will get a taste of the mysterious Son of God who walked this earth 2000 years ago – by seeing Him alive and well inside of you.
