When it comes down to it unconditional love is often described as being at the heart of the Christian faith. The scriptures tell us that “God is love!” In this sense Jesus himself is love incarnate.
Love, unconditional love, is demanding. It requires something of us. It involves sacrifice. This reality has been the story of the martyrs through the centuries and as we contemplate the masses of refugees moving around the globe and the response of our own government (and much of the Australian population) the question can easily be asked, “where is the love?”
Being God’s people call us to speak up and out in the name of the love we have experienced and to reach out to those at the margins with that very same generous love.
Can love make a way? Let us pray it is so!
