Bearing with One Another Through Love

By Fr. Jonas Abib
Founder Cancao Nova

"I then, prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love” (The Second Letter to the Ephesians 4, 1-2).

You might be asking today: “Are you talking about love AGAIN, Father Jonas?” For sure! When I woke up today, God put that sentence of the Gospel in my heart: “bear with one another through love.”

I yearn living my whole life loving my fellowman. You should also yearn for it because it is essential. God rewards the love you give. I also want to mention here another passage of the Gospel linked to that: “Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins” (The First Letter of Peter 4, 8).

Only through love we can communicate Jesus’ salvation to those we love and those who just pass through our lives. Temptation deceives us, telling us we should never trust people and we should mind our own business. Though God is telling us today: “bear with one another through Christ’s love!”

Love will lead you to perfection: your salvation lies in love. God made us for love: love that supports, forgives, fights for the beloved one, exhorts the fellowman, mourns with them, cheers them up and never gives up…love, love, always love…
