Virtually anything worth doing requires sacrifice of some kind.  Being in a relationship; raising children; honing a talent or skill; participating in an athletic event.  Life can be costly, and we certainly all know that forgiveness is.  It cost Jesus everything.  But Jesus’ willingness to give himself for us secured our eternal salvation.

That is a truth this coming Sunday’s Epistle highlights.  But the Epistle also poses a question: are we–are you–living in a way that honors the preciousness of the sacrifice that Christ made?

The better we understand what Jesus has done for us, the more we will want to live for him–at least if we are people of honor, and integrity.

This Sunday’s Epistle is a frank reminder that Christianity is more than a feeling; it is a manner of life, stemming from the fact that Jesus gave his life for us.  The first Christians simply called it “the Way”.  Grounded in love, it seeks to grow in personal and communal holiness, as we pattern our lives more and more after the example of Jesus.
