“Love Wins”? Love Has Already Won

The Supreme Court has ruled that gay marriage is an individual right guaranteed by the Constitution.  We can now marry almost anyone we want to marry, although it has not been made legal to marry multiple spouses, yet.  I am sure soon someone will sue somewhere and will somehow get the case heard before the Supreme Court.  Now the President tweeted that “Love Wins”.  What kind of love has won?  A humanistic, self-centered, self-indulgent, self-fulfilling, self-hating kind of love?  I don’t want a love that enables me to sin without any concern for future consequences, like what Paul said, “Eat, drink and be merry” with not a worry about tomorrow.

Love didn’t finally win on the day the Supreme Court made its landmark decision.  I didn’t even realize that love was still fighting a battle, nevermind the war the media portrayed.  Who was this gay love fighting against?  Ah, I see, they were fighting against an out dated, backwards and bigoted worldview that God created man and woman to be husband and wife.  It is so wrong to think that way, so mean-spirited, so hateful, and anti-love.  If we supposedly live and serve the God of love then how can we possibly think that homosexual love is possibly wrong?

Almost two thousand years love did win a battle,  it wasn’t much of a battle for us.  And it wasn’t much of a battle for our Father in heaven.  It was a six hour war for our Lord and Savior.  He did not so much as fight against His Heavenly Father as much as He endured the onslaught of His Father’s wrath.  It wasn’t just because of our sin that He willingly went to the cross.  That was a small part of it.  It was because He loved us.  His love was more than enough to overcome our sin.  His love was more than enough overcome His Father’s wrath.  His love is more than enough to guaranty our place as heirs in His kingdom.  Love did not win on June 26, 2015.  Love won before the world even began.
