THE WONDERFUL EFFECT OF DIVINE LOVE: THOMAS A KEMPIS







"Love is a great thing, yea a great good; alone it makes every burden

light and bears evenly all that is uneven.  For it carries a burden which is

no burden; and makes all bitterness sweet and palatable."

                                  From the Fourth Book of  The Imitation of Christ


 It is sometimes surprising what a person in love can do.  In real life, there are true

 stories of sacrifice and endurance of a lover. He will go to great lengths to make

 his beloved happy.


Thomas A Kempis, a great saint allude that this human love has its relationship with

agape, Divine Love.  God is the Source of all.  God is love.  The human love that

people express to one another is only an offshoot of Divine Love.  "For God so loved

the world that he sent His Beloved Son into the world to die for our sin." Jn 3:16
