The Most Holy Trinity

“The Love of God has been poured into our hearts.”
Romans 5:1-5

We are reminded in this passage that God does not want us to live in shame or hopelessness in our suffering. We don’t have to prove we are worthy through our achievements, success or virtues.

If we allow the love of God that has been ‘poured into our hearts’ to manifest then we can move through our difficult or challenging experiences with a sense of hope as we accept the process as part of our journey. In this way, every situation is another opportunity to experience his love for us and pass it on -and especially in the moments when we may otherwise turn to fear, judgement or blame.

By standing in his grace, we can recognise we are loved no matter what, and from this place of love, we respond in peace to others and to our situation.
