LOVE – THE GREATEST OF ALL VIRTUES AND THE WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE
If our life on earth was only an hour long, and we had nothing but Christ, the joy, sweetness and love we would experience, would fill our souls with delight, and be more desirable than an entire lifetime enjoying all the material things, for matter can never replace the God who created us. Further, without Christ, we are dead before we die. To be without Christ is to be placed among the poorest on earth, and to have Christ enrolls us among the most wealthy, far above kings and billionaires. Christ is the life of all men; Christ is everything good, the priceless pearl, who desires that no one perish but that all come to knowledge of truth. It is only in Jesus Christ that we will find the wonders of love, peace and joy, not only experiencing them but sharing them as though our own. Love is the most important thing in heaven and on earth, and Paul says that love is the lasting virtue, “love never ends”.
All the servants of God in the heavenly world, know that God is love and that love prevails among them all. Here on earth, magazines that write about love are tainted with erroneous ideas, for love is not found in the passions of the flesh.
