A man who loved
We live in a culture that pushes us toward images of sexuality when it comes to words that describe people’s love for each other. But why not challenge ourselves to break through the imagery promoted by so much on TV, in books and magazines, in the movies and on CDs, and take a look at Christ Jesus, a man who loved everyone so unconditionally, so powerfully.
Christ Jesus deeply loved men. He also deeply loved women. He was strongly drawn to children. Yet his love was far apart from any physical attraction. His pure sense of love really dealt with a different world from the world of sexuality. He saw himself and others more in the context of spirituality, more with a divine than a sexual identity or orientation.
Jesus saw individuals as God sees them. And this more inspired view lifted those individuals into healing, where a more material view would have left them with materialism’s downward pull. Jesus expected us to love people the way he loved them. He loved them into health and wholeness. He loved them into well-being, strength, and innocence. He said, “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another” (John 13:34).
