“True love for God means obeying his commands, and his commands don’t weigh us down as heavy burdens. You see, every child of God overcomes the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world.” (I John 5: 3-4, the Passion Translation)
True faith is powerful. That trust based on a love for God, good, gives us a victory over the world and its challenges, fears, and limitations. The world would have us believe that we are mortal and doomed, that evil can conquer goodness, that what the senses tell us is the whole story.
A cynical and faithless view of life is what really weighs us down. A reliance on God, on Spirit, on what speaks within our hearts and souls, is freeing, burdenless, and also reliable. We can obey God’s commands by releasing our grip on fear and doubt, believing these things are legitimate, even somehow based in law. We can let our faith in the spiritual qualities of Love, Life, Truth, goodness, lead us forward, upward.
We can overcome the box the world would have us believe is legitimate. Through our faith in the power and possibilities of God, we can begin to live as He intended—as children of Life and of Love, born to flourish. We can show our true love for God—for universal good and infinite Love—by trusting Him to guide us and to perfectly care for us as we triumphantly and gratefully march on.
