To Love is to Exist

April 8, 2009

Anyone who exists, loves something.  Any agent, any being, any person, who exists within or out of time, must by definition have a will, a desire.  And this will and desire is the very foundation of love.

What are you loving right now? What does your existence look like at this moment in time? Are you wrapped up in selfish little pleasures, patting your little ego, and putting it back inside your shirt pocket before anyone elses sees you with it?  What, who are you loving right now?  This then correlates exactly with who you are.

Live, then, as who you are. Christ declares you righteous.  One weakness of Calvinism is that it teaches sanctification by human gratitude.  But the bible teaches about sanctification more as a divine reality.  Be, because you already are.
