“He who has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me; and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him." Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?" Jesus answered him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not mine but the Fathers who sent me. "These things I have spoken to you, while I am still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.”
We must keep one thing in mind, God loves each of us individually as if each one of us, was the only person that existed. That is why our relationship with Him, is so real and so incredible, once you really welcome Him to be in our lives. St. Augustine says it this way, “The Lord loves each of us as if there were only one of us to love.” God made us out of love to love, so that, we to, would love. Obviously, everything comes from God, but it’s all through His love.
Let me say this: I get all excited and filled with so much joy; most people can’t for the life of them, figure me out. Yes, I admit cream soda has something to do with it, I love cream soda, I really do. But, it’s not that! Inside of me there is a fire, a fire that’s been burning for the past 36 years and it is ragging with excitement sharing and loving and telling everyone about Jesus, our Lady and the Rosary. To me, this life is all about, me giving my life to tell everyone about Jesus. For that is the greatest use of my life, to draw others to my Lord.
