EASTER WEDNESDAY 2
WORD of the DAY
God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God. (John 3: 7-15)
How shall I live this Word?
We can start over by being born again from above, looking at the logic of God that we know through the testimony that Jesus gives: looking at the cross, the measure of His love, we understand how to be born again. Jesus insists: God Himself shows us that the only way to live renewed is to give one’s life and He manifests it by giving us His Son. God’s will is a saving will. What He most desires is that everyone be saved, that is, deeply happy. We are, however, dramatically and extraordinarily free to welcome salvation or reject it, to welcome the light or to let the darkness fill our conscience. Precisely because we are loved we are free; precisely because we are free we can refuse that love. Risen Jesus, living through the ages, is ready to give Himself for each of us.
Teacher, grant that I may welcome You as the Savior and become ever more capable of loving You and aware that I am loved beyond and within my limits.
The Voice of William Shakespeare, Dramatist
Love, love madly, love as much as you can and if they tell you it’s a sin, love your sin and you will be innocent.”
