The Bond of Perfectness

The “bond of perfectness”.

The “pure love of Christ”.

You have known people who possess this love.


Love the elevates,

Love that endures,

Love that is patient,

Love that transforms,

Love that forgives,

Love that is selfless,

Love that rejoices in truth,

Love that redeems,

Love that saves.

That is the pure love of Christ.

We are rescued and changed through that love.


And as we allow Christ’s charity to change us, we gradually develop that same love within us.


Then we too are able to love others with that same transformative kindness, mercy, patience, forgiveness, humility.


Through the charity (pure love) of Christ for us and within us, we are perfected together.



How has Christ’s charity changed you?

Who in your life do you know who has magnified this pure love of Christ toward others?

What impact has their love had on you and others?

Perhaps it’s time to thank them.

“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;.

“Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, … even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye..

“And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.”

– Colossians 3:12-14
