God’s Unconditional Love
Rom 5:8 – But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
It is so awesome to think that God loved us even when we were messed up! He still loves us when we mess up, but he loved us when we were messed up! God reached out to us and gave us His love. As believers, we need to get beyond condemnation and guilt of the past. The scripture says in 1John 3:20, “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.” We need to accept the fact that God loves us.
As we walk in the newness of life, we walk in the fullness of God’s love, knowing that we will make it because of His love! Because of His love we are strengthened. Because of His love we have peace. Because of His love God hears and answers our prayers. We have already been accepted in the beloved.
So if God loves us, we ought to love ourselves! We really can’t love others until we love ourselves. And we can’t love God until we love others. We have to accept the fact that God has made us in His likeness and in His image. Part of that likeness and image is to be a person of love. “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1John 4:8)
Prayer Focus: Lord, may I be established in the revelation that you love me and that you love me unconditionally
