Scriptures: Luke 10:21-37

21: In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, "I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.

22: All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."

23: Then turning to the disciples he said privately, "Blessed are the eyes which see what you see!

24: For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it."

25: And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"

26: He said to him, "What is written in the law? How do you read?"

27: And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."

28: And he said to him, "You have answered right; do this, and you will live."

29: But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"

30: Jesus replied, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31: Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.

32: So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

33: But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was; and when he saw him, he had compassion,

34: and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; then he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35: And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, `Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.'

36: Which of these three, do you think, proved neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?"

37: He said, "The one who showed mercy on him." And Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."

It was God's purpose of creation for Him and creature to form the eternal standard to correlate centering around His love.

But the God's love nullified due to the fall of man remained everlasting object before the degenerated man who is to restore his intrinsic value as created.

There have been variety of forms in love on earth, but there has never been a harmonious and affectionate love of God, and unless His love be founded on the earth, there may be no room for paying off His grievances.

So as to make His love realized on earth, it is unavoidable for embodiment, unchangeable, cosmic standard to appear on the stage.

Jesus sent to this word was the very introducer of God's love and all the prophets and sages prior to Jesus had only paved the way for relationship with Him.

Consequently was the serious hope of God for all creatures to give and take with Jesus, the Providential crystal, and the fruit of love during the four thousand years and Jesus was to manifest divine love to them.

Contrary to God's hope, however Jesus' way to the crucifixion finally brought about the loss of the fruit of God's love breaking through the barrier clogged up between God and creature.

So we and modern Christians are to pay off Jesus' sorrow and grievances due to the ignorance of the then Jewish people.

As God grieved at the fall of Adam and Eve, so Jesus sorrowed at their trying to crucify him due to the ignorance of their true father, Jesus Christ.

It is the reason of recoming of Messiah to link Heaven and Earth with God's love. Therefore we can and should restore the bridal position, incarnation of God's love which will enable us to enjoy everlasting original God's love with recoming Messiah.

Who can deserve to be such a bride then? First of all, he should be the true man who is capable of consoling God on behalf of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit and creature that will be sure to pay off their grievances.

For the fulfillment of such a mission, we should love God with all our hearts, all our souls and all our minds.

"With love all our hearts', means the Divine love, "that with all our souls" means the human one, and "love with all our minds" means a lifelong one. Now we are to make divine love the human one, and make the human love the lifelong love of individual and the lifelong love the scope of living love.

In other words, love of soul centering around heart, love of mind centering around soul should be pulled into our living scope. Every move of Jesus in his lifetime of thirty three years was consolidated course of love with all his heart, all his soul and all his mind that had been the unprecedented unspotted sacrifice.

So we must not love with grimy hearts, souls and minds in order to give and take with Jesus.

Such a man can correlate with Jesus and experience God's love, the standard of the universal idea.
