Love never fails! The resurrection of Christ was the cosmic and supernatural stamp that Love will always win. While we might doubt the lasting impressions of our love for one another, Jesus makes the claim that since love can overpower death, it can overpower dissension, conflict and sin! Love will allow us to claim victory in our marriages, in our families, in our church, and in our community!

Love is not self seeking. The definition of agape is doing what's in the other person's best interest. Therefore the very definition of love assumes relationship.

May we feast with him and continue this legacy of communal love.
