Looking at Jesus, we see that God forgives, touches, heals, listens, welcomes, serves, and walks with people from all stations in life.

Looking at Jesus, we see that God seeks to fulfill the law of Love: love of God, self, and neighbor.

We see God by studying the person of Jesus. Through the power of the Holy Spirit in us, we have been given the grace to imitate Jesus and so give others a glimpse of God.

No one has ever seen God. Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us. 1 John 4:12

    “The grace to imitate Jesus.” Love that line. I have never thought of it as “grace” before. Through the Holy Spirit living in you, I now understand! Thank you and God Bless, SR

    Thank you, but compared to you I see where many areas in my life I am coming up short. I do believe God is beginning to give to me the desires of my heart, to be all He created me to me. However slowly that may be in coming! 🙂 You are the best example I have had in life, to follow. God Bless, SR

      Dear SR,
      I have been taught by wise people that the only person I can compare myself to is… myself. When I look at today and see I have done my best on the road to Love, I can be content.
