Perfect Love

 One morning, I was in a big hurry to start the day but I wanted a scripture to keep me in touch with God. I prayed for one and I Thessalonians 3:13 came to mind. I didn't know what it said so I looked it up. It says, "And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints." (Verse 13-14)

 As I read it, I was struck by this thought: blamelessness is a matter of the heart not just external behavior, and it results in genuine love. 

 Many people are weary of religion because too often, religious people, parents, and pastors have hammered us with holiness, using guilt as the primary factor to attempt to motivate us to do what's right. I'm so aware of this that I don't even like all the songs on Christian radio that sing about holiness. Holiness is a tarnished word. Blamelessness smacks of perfectionism. The very idea leaves many people and sometimes me awash in hopelessness.

 Holiness ought to be good news, but because of all the baggage the word carries today it is so freighted with condemnation and guilt, many people just want to give up whenever they hear the word holy.                               

Because John Wesley taught that perfection was attainable in this life, numerous holiness denominations grew from the revival he spawned. Sadly, they all too often missed the point he was trying to make and got bogged down in spiritual trivial pursuits like whether women could wear pants and Christians can go to movies, drink or dance. To Wesley, holiness meant perfecting our capacity to love. And nothing gets us closer to God than love, for God doesn't have love, He IS Love.

 We are to love one another and in fact all people. When we do that, we walk with God. When we walk close to Him, His love surrounds and fills us. The elusive internal happiness for which we seek becomes ours. Once we have that, lust loses its luster. For if you have champagne, why would you choose to drink from a sewer.

 Lord, teach me to abide in love. Nothing less satisfies. Nothing less makes life worth living.
