Oneness

Saint Paul says, “… there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3: 28). The new humanity that we are pointed toward is not neuter or unisex or even oversexed, all of which make love impossible. In Christ we are whole, one, in union, integrated, wholly holy. That is the final product of the Spirit’s work of making all things one. It is the consummate achievement of God in Christ who reconciles all things within himself (Colossians 1: 20) and invites us into the ongoing reconciliation of all things (Ephesians 5: 20).

It Is Simply About Loving

“Whoever loves is born of God and knows God.” Unfortunately, many Christians think, “If I read the Bible, I’m born of God; or if I go to church, I know God; or if I obey the commandments, I know God.” Yet John says it’s simply about loving. Note that the inverse is true also. “Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love.”

Time Is Life

When you agree to live simply, you have time for spiritual and corporal works of mercy because you have renegotiated in your mind and heart your very understanding of time and its purposes. Time is not money, despite the common aphorism. Time is life itself!
