Every opportunity to love
So thankful today that Jesus did what I could never do:
Every temptation, he resisted. Every sin, he rebuked. Every affront, he forgave. Every blow, he absorbed.
Every opportunity to love, he loved.
In this he condemned sin in the flesh, dragging it to death as he himself died.
But sin, having been denied in him, could not destroy him, even by death of the body.
The Divine Life in him consumed even physical death, so he was raised, Resurrected, his body healed, purfied, perfected–Spirit-soaked, through and through– by the Lord, the Giver of Life.
So every mercy, he pours out. every grace, he gives.
Every one, he saves.
