Loving the Son is the center of the Father’s world, and always has been. The Son, not our sin, is the Father’s obsession. And when this cascading Trinitarian love comes crashing through, it changes the landscape of our lives.
Of course, there will always be someone objecting, “There’s more to it than love. There’s got to be more.” Probably so. Certainly so. There is something more. But there is nothing better. Many of our problems can be traced back to this: we inevitably go for the something more before being established in the nothing better—and then we wonder why our hearts are not astonished.
We can be sure of this: Satan isn’t threatened by human brilliance, he isn’t impressed by human activity, and he isn’t worried about church programs. But love? Love will be his undoing. Because together, love wins.
