Ask God for love daily. Together with Love comes all the many blessings and virtues. – St. Nectarios of Aegina

I have always pondered in the past when Paul wrote that Faith, Hope and Love remain, why is the greatest of these Love? Yet then I knew, when we see Him faith will disappear, when we are with Him, hope will fade away. But Love. Love is eternal. It has always been. And will forever be.

It was at the that point I understood. At that very moment that I saw that it is not only that God loves. It is that God is Love. This, for me, was a life changing reality. God’s very being is Love. And if I am in Him, I am in Love. Both in the very physical sense: of being in a Love relationship with God. But in an even more real sense: I am existing fully in Love.
