“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Truth: I am receiving the unconditional love of God
God’s love is not something we have earned. In fact, his love was given while we were still sinners. He sees every act we have done, will do, every thought, every intention. He sees directly into our hearts, minds and lives and knows all things — things we have hidden and things we have revealed.
Here is the awesome truth we must understand. With all of his perfect knowledge of us, he loves us! Unlike much of the earthly love we have experienced, his love is unconditional.
What does that mean for you and for me? We are called to rest in God’s unconditional love. Striving won’t make his love greater. Resting, believing, trusting, hoping in that love — that is your call and my call in life. Then, we take that unconditional love of God to others.
