”Being free means ‘being free for the other’, because the other has bound me to him. Only in relationship with the other am I free.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
only in a relationship, with Him in the picture; you are truly free to give, free to receive, free to lay bare of your heart, free to be accepted and feel loved. only in a relationship, you are free to suffer for the other; free to say, ‘i can die for you because you, your life matters to me more than mine.’
In a relationship with God, He enabled us to receive this from Him; and He enabled us to do the same to others for His name. Eden is a perfect communion until the devil breaks the scene. We are called to be in relationships for His glory.
Love testifies God, people cannot see it because of deceits and previous hurts from the devil… but Love plus Truth will eventually pierce through every of God’s lost sheep. Love without the truth is hollow and can drift to lust. But the Truth breaks lies, the Spirit opens eyes, Sufferings and Love delivers the Truth. True Love carries the Truth. Amen.
