Perfection of Love

Reading through some articles about John Wesley for my studies. I liked this, from Mildred Wynkoop:

The prayer of the Christian and the search of one’s heart should be to achieve ‘perfection of love,’ a moral wholeness and integration that engages the entire life. Perfect love has to do with turning all the energies and interests outward toward the world rather than providing a hiding place from it.

Forgiveness is not merely a personal event but the entrance into a community in which forgiveness is the prevailing atmosphere. It is a social connection as well as a personal event. Perfection of love is only ‘individual’ as it becomes the expression of new relationships under the Lordship of Christ.
