rock[1]Jeremiah 31:33

God’s Love Letter Part III

I will place my law within them, and write upon their hearts; I will be their God, and they will be my people.

We have the choice to move into union with God or to remain apart. God unfailingly offers an open, standing invitation to become one with all of creation. God asks that we allow our hearts of stone to bear fruit in God’s time and plan.

God says: I tell you endlessly how much I love you and yet you allow your fear to take you over. I tell you constantly that I will never leave you and yet you doubt. I tell you honestly that I forgive you and yet you hesitate. In every moment of your existence I am with you. This is my promise. This is my message. This is your portion as my most beloved one. This is my letter of love to you. 

imagesCABFE3IBSaint Paul reminds the Corinthians and he reminds us that because Christ lives in each one of us we have the power to bring God’s love to the world: You show that you are Christ’s letter, delivered by us. You weren’t written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God. You weren’t written on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (2 Corinthians 3:2-3)

As we reflect on God’s letter to us, let us offer our hearts of stone to God so that they might become hearts that bear fruit.  And let us also consider how we might act in response to God’s Call to Love.
