Received these words today via a text thought I would share them.
How far would you go for love?
And not the kind of love that seeks only to satisfy our own needs and desires; real love. Sacrificial love. Love that costs us. Love that means we go without in order for the other to benefit. A love that gives even in secret, silence, without praise, reward or thanks. That hidden love that delights in giving itself. This love is divine, incarnated on the cross by Jesus. He lived the life that sets us free, one of perfect obedience, and it cost him his life. He did it so you could live it too. He did it because of love for you. Today we celebrate because he has conquered death and now he can live in us and shape us to love as we have been loved.
