Love Without Exception

December 29, 2017

Beautifully and powerfully stated, Jake!

The story of Jesus begins long before the manger and even before the angel Gabriel’s startling announcement to Mary. Before God said, “Let there be light,” and “Let there be stars and moon, fish and birds, cows and caterpillars,” God said, “Let there be Jesus.”

In other words, God creates in order to embrace. To stand in our midst. To be one of us. To invade our personal space with overwhelming, life-giving love. And after speaking “Jesus,” God speaks each particular creature into existence in order to be in relationship with that one, irreplaceable, infinitely unique being.

CBE47016-4695-4022-9CEA-577607D008DCBy starting a Gospel with the words “In the beginning,” John invites us to understand Jesus from the perspective of creation. In turn, he hopes to shape our grasp of God’s love for us and to show us the path toward a new and radical depth in our love for one another.
