“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made in perfect love. We love because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:18-19)
As Christians, it does not come as a shock when we are reminded that we are loved by God. It is an elementary concept, and there are times when we wholeheartedly believe it and we feel the love He proclaims. However, there are also times when Jesus seems silent, and the extent of His love is put in question.

Much has been written recently about the discovery of evidence that points towards the existence of gravitational waves. Rather than repeating what has already been widely reported, let us examine another perspective on this discovery.
Back in 1916, Albert Einstein proposed the existence of gravitational waves as a “side effect” of his general theory of relativity. Einstein noted that since mass and energy are interchangeable, large bodies of mass or large amounts of energy could affect (i.e. distort) space-time, which can be viewed as a fabric. What is commonly referred to as gravitation is nothing other than a bend in the fabric of space-time. Distortions could in turn cause ripples throughout the fabric.

During Jesus’ ministry many referred to him as a rabbi, or teacher, because he regularly taught anyone willing to learn from him. Crowds of curious people came out to see him day after day because they were eager to hear from a man with a reputation for strong teaching, impeccable character and powerful miracles. Although the masses were seldom disappointed, Jesus recognized that a significant gap remained between what he was teaching and what people were learning. They were willing to listen but they were reluctant to apply what they heard.
