Each of us bear the image of God outwardly and inwardly. God has given each of us a portion of Himself. He desires to give of Himself to those around us. God is love; pure, holy, humble love. Love isn't love unless it can be expressed. The more love gives, the brighter it burns and makes an impression on all those in it's presence. God's love transforms, heals, renews, washes away the residue of sin, the scum of sin, the heavy crust of sin. God's love energizes that which was dead. It transforms and makes beautiful that which has been marred and scarred by sin. Even our words, written and thought myriads of different ways by an untold number of Christians throughout the ages can still have significance, can inspire and give hope. Why?, because God is that broad, that expansive and completely uncontainable, to ever comprehend or know fully, and each of us are yet another unique expression of His love.
"If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also."
"Just as in the world there are rich and poor people, so are there in the spiritual world. We are spiritually poor and they are spiritually rich and it is for them, therefore, that we beggars must appeal." John of Krondstadt
