Catalysts of Love




Let your heart express boundless love.  Kindle it with tenderness and affection.  Let your output be like that of a fiery furnace that’s perpetually burning.  Live a life full of love by reaching out to everyone – the rich and poor alike.  Allow love to become the joy of your heart, and you’ll be like a shining light in the midst of darkness.  Joseph Addison (1672 1719), an English poet, and essayist wrote, “Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”  So work for peace and love humanity. Let us beat our swords into plowshares.  

Indestructible Love

Your love is a pathway to hearts.  Capture its true essence and follow its goodness.  Be triumphant in your quest, by embracing, and kissing an indescribable love.  In so doing you’ll discover joy shining brightly like the sun in a clear blue sky.  In short you’ll be one of many lights in the world just like the saints.  Hosea Ballou (17711852), a Universalist theologian and clergyman wrote, “Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.”  Now, do express this empathy when you are touched by love’s beauty. 

Beyond Love

Let true love beyond love, be your battle cry.  Seek out hearts willing to receive it.  By longing for a deeper fulfillment this is perfection setting one’s heart afire.  In such a relationship let us reach out to families, neighbors, and friends - even to the length, and breadth of the world.  This is when you’ll be bringing joy, peace, and delight to others.  This is the serenity people find in Jesus Christ.  A French soldier Ferdinand Foch (18511929) wrote, “The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”

Belief of Power

Love is a dynamic force that starts by warming hearts.  It’s replete with goodness and its fundamental tenets are found in the Gospels.  By faith readers of such works are able to know what it means to live in the Spirit.  A Bengali literary figure Rabindranath Tagore (18611941) said, “Faith is the bird that feels the light when dawn is still dark.”  This power of love stirs our imagination and guides us.  It reaches out triumphantly in our world turning everything into true bliss. These blessings raise our consciousness to elevated planes, like in loving Jesus Christ, who’s the Creator of this reality.  His sacrifice, death, resurrection, and ascension are glorious.  Christ showed his supernatural power as the foundation of salvation. 

It took Jesus’s humble act of submission to accomplish extraordinary feats.  Only through grace can we begin to appreciate his actions.  Inevitably, he’s the epitome of the power of love.  His was a clarion call to us to know these blessings, but still there are doubters about his saving grace.  Even one of his own disciples Thomas had to touch his wounds to believe.  Those of faith are able to express this superb love with the belief, “Love conquers all.” This faith-propelled belief is the catalyst of supreme love.
