Inextinguishable is His Love for Us
The evil we did to him during the Crucifixion did not extinguish the bonfire of love that burns for us in his most sacred heart nor reduce its intensity by even the slightest degree. He refused to let go of his love for us even though we baptized him in a boiling cauldron of torture and death (Matthew 3:13-15). His love for us ought to have faded as we tortured him and died when we killed him. But it did not. His love survived our evil. The intransigency of his love for sinners is the rock on which we build our understanding of God. His passion, death and resurrection are the source of our confidence in him. We are dearly loved by Omnipotence. Our God is our omnipotent lover. Whom shall we fear? Of whom shall we be afraid? He will never disappoint us. He will never let us down. Trust in him (Psalm 27).
