On Gospel Love

When the goal of our faith is true communion with God, relationship with Him, then we cease asking what must we do to enter the Kingdom or if we can lose salvation, and instead strive to allow Him to change us through whatever means He offers us. No one ever enters the bonds of marriage by merely asking what they just do to avoid divorce, rather they are elated to enter marriage regardless of what they must surrender; they understand that the covenant love they have attained is far superior. When we legalistically begin asking “must I do this,” it is only love for self that we are displaying. It is only when we are willing to sacrifice of ourselves that we truly love another, as Jesus Himself not only taught, but exemplified on the Cross.
