For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
God sent his only Son to earth to save us, because he loves us! Being Christian means that we have had an encounter with an event, a person. God has made himself visible in Jesus Christ, Love and Truth itself. Pope Benedict stated that, “contact with the visible manifestations of God’s Love can awaken within us a feeling of joy born of the experience of being loved. But this encounter also engages our will and our intellect.
Acknowledgement of the living God is one path toward love, and the “yes” of our will to his will unites our intellect, will and sentiments in the all -embracing act of love. Love is never “finished or complete; throughout life, it changes and matures, and thus remains faithful to itself.”
