Calling and love

Mr. Standfast has been talking about calling and love over at his blog. I've put a few comments there, and thought I'd post them here as well.

I think God has a calling for everyone of us, but not everyone of us knows what this calling is. But when you know what your calling is, it always comes with an extradinary love. God gives the love together with the calling, so the person being called can't help it but to love. It's different than people's concept of love though. For example, Hellen Keller's teacher Anne's calling is toward Helen. She had an extraordinary love for Helen. But to everyone else, she might not have the same extraordinary love. She might not even be able to love her own family. But she was able to love Helen with the love and capacity that enabled by God. God continued to give her love, strength, patience, encouragement everyday through the journey, it's tied together with her calling. We can't try to fake it when we don't have the true calling,you'll soon tell. When there's a real calling, there's a real love, and this love is the same love that will sacrifice one's only son on the cross in order to see the purpose fulfilled.

There's a big difference between God's love and our own love. Human love bounces back when this love is rejected. But love that God gives will not give up at this point, but it will be able to keep loving and loving, no matter how hard it's rejected, how long it will take, whatever price it will require, it WILL not give up. It will persevere until God's purpose is fulfilled. Because God is love, and God will not give up. As a matter of fact, if the love is from God, I'd be really surprised to see that it doesn't get rejected and turned down and severely challenged.Human love will not stand the challenge, but God's love will. Because God's love never fails.
