John 15:9 As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love. [NRSV]
That kind of complete love is one of the biggest challenges our faith calls us to recognize. We struggle because we know our own well-kept secrets. The wonder of the love of God revealed to us in Jesus Christ is that He knows all our secrets too and He still finds us lovable. Accepting and acting in accordance with Jesus and His complete love is where hope triumphs over the secrets that have kept us from being “love”able.
Romans 5:5 ..and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
