Reflections on Love

by a disciple Jesus loves

Love brings a cross.
Falling into the ground to die,
Washing the feet of one who will deny Him,
Embracing one who will betray Him with a kiss,
Laying down His life,
Leaving the beloved to suffer for a time.
Love brings a cross.

Love brings resurrection.
Bringing forth much fruit,
Cleansing and holiness,
Abiding in the Father’s love,
Entrusting the beloved to the better Comforter,
Returning again to receive us to Himself.
Love brings resurrection.

Love calls the beloved to follow:
The shadow of the cross,
The glory of the resurrection.
“Love one another as I have loved you.
Abide in My love.”
