The early followers of Christ were called the Way, not Christians. We have found the way to all things that are meaningful and lasting. There are many highways, bi-ways, many roads, but only one of them leads us to eternal life, to God the Father, to Jesus Christ, to fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
When we find Jesus, we have found the Way. The Way to what?
HE IS THE ONLY WAY TO REAL LOVE
Let’s stop trying to find love outside of Jesus Christ. His love is the real love.
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (1 John 3:16)
In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:9-11)
I praise God for the love of my life—Mary Maiden. She is the one I love, but she can never love me like Jesus. We can’t ask our spouses to be Jesus—to love us with only the love He can love. Only God can love us to the depth we need.
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
