"Jesus is your Friend -the friend- with a human heart, like yours, with most loving eyes that wept for Lazarus. And as much as He loved Lazarus, He loves you..."
(Btw the shortest verse in the Bible is John 11:35. "And Jesus wept.")
Love. It's an interesting feeling. It can make us do crazy things! It can make up do stupid things! But I do notice that if we love someone or something, we will do everything in our power to love them/it back. It may seem easy to fall in love of other things, but if we fall in love with God...man things happen.
When we love a favorite bball team, what do we do? We buy a merchandise, promote them and cheer on the team. When you love someone, we tell the whole world!
Imagine if we loved God like that? What would the world be like? What would we be like? Instead of not saying anything when someone bashes our faith, we would defend it! We would not be afraid to do the Sign of the Cross in public. We would stand up and defend Life! We would actually read the Bible on our own time.
That love is like a fire. Once a fire touches an object, the object permanently changes. That kind of Love is dangerous. With that kind of Love, WE CAN SET THE WORLD ON FIRE. We can show the world our Love for God and we should.
