Easter Love

Years ago I realised that in a perfect world we would never have been able to grasp, 

“how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”

Ephesians 3:18

Love is seen in the personal cost it is willing to pay to help someone in need. If our whole lives, and the lives of those around us were a paradise of bliss, how could love be demonstrated?

Then I came to-

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial  because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life  that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

James 1:12

Without trials through which we have the opportunity to persevere, we could not know how wide and long and high and deep is our love for him. We can profess love for Jesus, but until it is proven by sacrificial love for his people here around us, the words are not proven.

Our love has limits and most days life’s circumstances demonstrate them. On the cross Jesus demonstrated that his love has none!
