Love: Looking back

Two weeks back sermon was on 1 Corinthians 13. Last week’s agape was on 1 John 4:20-21.

Reflecting back of these two months, I’ve realised how little I knew of myself – especially the emotional side of me, that I always thought it is at a very minimum level as often I was being labeled as doing things more rational than being emotional.

The fact of life, putting into action in contrast of understanding about love is nevertheless a great lesson for this year. The pain caused by struggles not only in teaching about love, but living as one is enormously great. I supposed the first thing to learn in “walking the talk” is about forgiveness. The true act of forgiveness, as what D.A. Carson mentioned, reflects the true understanding of salvation given to us by Christ Jesus Himself.

It’s Christmas, soon. Looking back, this year indeed past with a blink of an eye.

Wishes a great Christmas holiday to all my dearest family and friends – may the true meaning of Christmas brings you joy forever!
