Today we read the February 5 selection from A Year with C.S. Lewis.
Lewis today talks about the love that is found in the Trinity. He tells us that Christianity is unique among the religions of the world because it expresses the love that God has within the Trinity, which has been going on for eternity.
This tells us something profound about God. He has been loving, and will be loving, longer than we can conceive. He was love before the world began, and will be love after time is no more.
So the next time you're struggling to experience love – when you feel distance from God and need Him in your life – remember that He knows what love is. He is what love means. And He will bring Himself, the ultimate manifestation of love, into your life when you ask Him to.
That's what He wants more than anything else in the world. To love you.
God, thank You for being what love means.
