For the gospel to Be “the Good News” we have to use the Divine definition of “Good” and that can be a challenge even on a good day. The simple reason for that is we are mortal beings with minds that rarely if ever accept the mystery of eternal concepts. It’s not that we don’t want to – it’s that we can’t, we are unable to and that’s ok. Where man gets in trouble is thinking that he can and does understand Divine concepts – this is one reason why Grace is so very important.
“But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.” – Luke 6:35-36
As long as we see God as cosmic punisher ready to pounce on us we will never be able to truly love others anything like His Love for them and for us. We become the mirror of the one or The One we believe to be God!
IF we see God Is LOVE beyond what we can fathom or possibly comprehend (and yes that includes even on the really bad days) then and only then can we Be His conduit of True Love!
