The One Thing That is Certain
If someone were to ask you, "What is the one thing in life that is certain?" you would have to answer, "The love of Christ." Not parents, not family, not friends. Not art or science or philosophy or any of the products of human wisdom. Only the love of Christ. You could not even say "God's love," because the truth that God is love is ultimately known only through Jesus Christ. Such is the certitude of faith rising from lived experience.
