A simple statement about triumph. Winning and Losing. What prevails and what ultimately…fails. Love wins. It really really does.
I’m reading through Rob Bell’s book, same title “Love Wins.” My secret: I always start with his last page. He brings things in full circle always, but I like reading the last page. It inspires me to then go to the first. I did this with “Velvet Elvis” and “Sex God” and “Jesus Wants to Save Christians” …its the ending that makes my little heart thump.
I believe in a God that loves, one that saves, one that gives, one that has moved me to love others to the best of my ability. I fail. My love fails. I don’t always do the right thing or say the right thing. I grapple with questions all the time and feel lost & found all over again…but this is life. This is it. I know that I would rather do this than spend my time doing something else. I love people and I will fight for people, all people, for as long as I live. I know what wins in the end.
So I want to post the ending so you know where my heart sits today, in this moment.
“Love is what God is, love is why Jesus came, and love is why he continues to come, year after year, person after person…May you experience this vast, expansive, infinite, indestructible love that has been yours all along. May you discover that this love is as wide as the sky and as small as the cracks in your heart no one else knows about. And may you know, deep in your bones, that love wins.”
