Overall, today’s passage truly represents much of what Jesus has become in the eyes of many. He is the one that saved us from our sins, through his love and grace, and through his sacrifice of life. While we cannot expect every man to do such a thing, to nail himself on a cross, we must live life as Jesus did, in respect and in servitude to those individuals around us, in whom we place extreme value and show our true devotion. In this way, a deep connection can also be formed. How else to illustrate the face and love of God and Jesus but through love itself. The same pure and powerful love between to people- two unholy sinners, two humans who were created in the image of God- the same pure and passionate love that led Jesus to the cross on Golgotha that day, that same love that caused him to save us from all of our misgivings and devious tendencies. In one moment of eye contact between two, absolutely beautiful, individuals who may not have much else going for them in life, they can each see the full feelings behind what Jesus did that day. At times like these, I remember the verse in 1 Corinthians that seems to revolve around love, while many do not, this one is one that has always been in my mind when I think relationships in general, and how to define love with another person.
