Sanctification: A Love Story

Sanctification is not about self-denial. It is a love story. It is about falling in love with the deepest and truest aspect of our being. It is about falling in love with god. After that, everything that separates us from god simply starts falling away. Sanctity does not require us to deny anything. It asks us only for our attention. It asks only that we love god and our neighbor more than ourself. Sanctity does not call us to self denial, it calls us to be the truest version of ourselves. It calls us to ignore distractions and shed our false self.

Son of the Morning

Son of
the
morning.

Bring
forth
dawn.

Brightness
outshine
night.

Son of
the
morning.

Bringer
of
light.

Brighten
my
soul.

Revelation

Love is patient
love is kind
it does not envy
it does not boast
it is not proud.

It does not
dishonor others
it is not self-seeking
it is not easily angered
it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love
thy neighbor
as thy self.

Love
thy enemies
and pray
for those who
prosecute you.

The time
of prophecies
has come
when love
has ceased.

Where those
with tongues
have been
stilled.

Where those
with knowledge
have passed
away.

False Christs
and false prophets
have arisen.

And the man
of lawlessness
is revealed.

The son
of destruction
who opposes
and exalts himself
above every so-called
god or object of worship.

And through
his shrewdness
he will cause deceit
to succeed
by his influence.

And will
magnify himself
in his heart
and will destroy many
while they are at ease.

So that he
takes his seat
in the temple of God
displaying himself
as being God.

He will pitch the tents
of his royal pavilion
between the seas
and beautiful
holy mountain.

Yet he
will come
to his end
and no one
will help him.
