The Furnace of Love

The path towards love begins with the observance of the commandments which gradually purifies the heart, engraves the form of Christ therein and attracts grace. The vision of the meek and lowly Christ throws the fire of divine love into the innermost recesses of man. When the law of love for God and neighbour makes its abode in the heart, all the commandments are fulfilled at once in a perfect measure, and the wondrous promise of Christ is accomplished: ‘He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father…, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.’

Christ is the Son of love and the God of love, Who bestows the spirit of love. Eternal life is the continuation of the relationship that man cultivates with Christ for as long as he lives on earth. If in this life this relationship is genuine and inspired by the love of God, in the world to come love for God will grow from one fulness to a greater fulness. If it is strong, holy and perfect, it will become stronger, holier and more perfect ‘still and still’. And this will be the blessedness of the spirits of just men made perfect in the Kingdom of God.

Translated from the original Greek, Κάμινος ἀγάπης, which is a chapter from the author’s book Ἡσυχασμός, ἡ δροσοβόλος κάμινος τῆς καρδιᾶς.
