God's Unconditional Love
"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16 NIV).
Do you know why you can approach God’s throne of grace with confidence?
Unconditional Love! God loves you unconditionally!
Have you ever experienced the awesome feeling of knowing you are loved unconditionally?
I have come to realize how many people struggle with understanding the concept of unconditional love.
I feel so blessed to have grown up under this kind of love. My mother loves her children no matter what. I honestly believe there is nothing I could do in which she would not find a way to support me. She may not always agree with me, and she may be quick to point that out, but I have always known that I have one person in my corner.
I find that kind of love in my wife. She can’t seem to NOT love me. At times, it seems I test that theory I’m sure, but regardless of my attitude that day or the way I respond to her, she keeps on loving me.
I hope you've had the experience of unconditional love, because it will go a long way toward understanding the deep love of our wonderful God. The truth is, however, that no matter what our experience is, we cannot fathom the depth of God’s love for His children (Ephesians 3:19).
The love of God is deeper than our level of comprehension. He loves us, not because of who we are, but because of who HE is! He is God! He is the Creator, Sustainer and Protector of the Universe. He made you and me in His image so that He could love us and we could love Him. He doesn’t just give us love—He is love.
God loves you unconditionally. You didn’t earn it; you don’t deserve it; you couldn’t buy it; and you can’t sell it. His love is yours whether you accept it or not. You cannot stop His love based on your behavior.
I don’t mean to oversimplify this, but I need to make sure I am clear on this one topic: GOD LOVES YOU! And he always will!
