My day last Oct.8 began at 3:30 a.m. I attended the “Committed Servants Weekend” from about 7:00 a.m at Tagaste Retreat House in Tagaytay. We talk about God’s Radical love, had two sessions that day in which I was able to see
God working in amazing ways in each person’s lives. The last session that night ended at around 10:00 pm, right then we went to our room I read my Bible and went to sleep about 10:30 pm. What an awesome day it was! I felt so good when I went to bed. My cup was full and I had experienced a full day of spending time with God and seeing Him at work. Most days that are busy aren’t as fulfilling, but this was an exceptional day. On the second day of our CSW I woke up earlier than my set alarm because of my excitement on dealing with God again. I’d like to share a little about the talks that I’ve heard. We had a close encounter with Him through the exposition of the Holy Eucharist, I really felt the passion of God’s love for us, and it is a strong and compelling desire for God that results in an intentional and intense pursuit of Him. That experience gives me goose bumps.
Loving God with all our hearts, with all our soul, with all our minds, and with all our strength is radical. His love for us is not casual. For goodness sake He loved us so much that He sent His one and only Son to die for us, taking all sin upon Him, so that we may live eternally. That is radical! If we have a radical love for God, time with Him will be our top priority. We spend time with those we love. If we don’t spend time with God, how can we say that we love Him? When we have casual love for God, our time with Him gets sacrificed. However, when we have radical love for Him, it is us and our will that gets sacrificed, and that’s a good thing! We are to love God more than we hate suffering. This leads us into radical living that goes completely against the culture. Too often we have radical excuses, but we shouldn’t try to justify our disobedience. Radical love for God means saying “YES,” when He calls, no matter the risk and sacrifice.
May God radically bless us, as we radically love Him!
