As we move into the Second Sunday of Lent, let us take a moment to be transfigured by the glory of God’s love emanating from His heart – and for who? You and me.
God is love and love is God. God and love goes together, without one the other is nothing and meaningless. We have so much to be thankful for His unconditional love for each one of us. He has loved us since the beginning of our existence and that is the reason why we are born – because of His love. He assures us that His love will never end right up until the life to come when we are with Him in His Kingdom.
I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” (Jeremiah 31:3)
Jesus is there for us all the time and He will never abandon us. We lose Christ in our life because of choices that we make – choices which cause us to not choose Him as the centre of our life. To be with Him again we must turn to Him. He always turns to us and is constantly seeking us because He is the King of all hearts in loving humankind.
Jesus’ Sacred Heart is pure, compassionate, merciful, kind, zealous, just and so many other positive descriptions that we may consider. To be with Him is the best thing that we can ever experience in our life. There is always joy to have Him near. This King of all hearts cannot be compared to anything or anyone on earth. God’s generosity is beyond measure. We continue to pray that we will not lose sight of Him because losing God means we lose the source of our life.
Prayer will help us to fix our eyes upon Jesus only, He who give us the inspiration and meaning of our life. Constancy in prayer will make us grow to be faithful, believing in Him, persevering with Him so that we are increasingly formed by His love. Through prayer we keep loving Him each day.
