Gospel

The Love that is energizing the universe…regards you as the beloved.

Romans 8:31

If God is for us, who can be against us?

+++

God has been creating for a long, long, long time.

Science tells us that the universe is at least 13 to 14 billion years old.

I said billion!

Everything has been evolving since the big bang…which seems to be the ingenious way that God is creating.

And as scripture tells us in the story of creation, God found it all to be “very good” (Genesis 1:31).

We are off-spring of God…as is everything else in the cosmos.

And since God is Love (1 John 4:8), we are existing in this Love.

St. Paul put it this way when speaking of our relationship with God: “In him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

Since Jesus said that if we knew him…then we know God (John 14:7), and since Jesus told us to forgive an infinite number of times (Matthew 18:22), and he told us to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44)…then I think you can understand why St. Paul could state the scripture line above.

Do not fear!

God loves you infinitely!

Live in the knowledge of that love…and spread the message with your life.
