Regardless of time, culture or circumstances, the heart virtues of Jesus will ALWAYS reign supreme against the contrasting spiritual attacks we face in the journeys of our lives. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness and so on, among others, represent the true reality of where power lies for transformation of hearts towards life. Put another way, that which is real — love, joy, etc — are the sources of power that fill the empty places of hearts where these virtues are lacking and described by opposite expressions — hate, despair, etc. Jesus came not only to set us free, but to fill us with HIMSELF and with the power to establish life in the midst of places where life is not present. Shine your light everywhere…the darkest places are where it is needed the most!
