Love is Blind


love-is-blindThe English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote that love is blind. Chaucer knew that we willingly distort truth in a mistaken idea of love. Our rose-colored glasses blind us to others so that we feel better about them and ourselves, but such blindness is dangerous to everyone involved. Overlooking sin is neither loving nor beneficial to anyone.

God’s love for you isn’t blind. The Father couldn’t ignore the wickedness of your sin. His love couldn’t put shades over his holiness. Instead, His equalled love and justice sent Jesus to die in your place. The Innocent for the guilty.

Jesus willingly paid the debt you owed for your sins. Justice was served upon Him so love could reign toward you.

When we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly … but God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:6, 8).
