“At just the right time Christ died for ungodly people. He died for us when we had no power of our own. 7 It is unusual for anyone to die for a godly person. Maybe someone would be willing to die for a good person. 8 But here is how God has shown his love for us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:6-8 NIRV
God loves us unconditionally. We do not earn His love; we do not deserve it. There are not certain things you must do or be to receive God’s love. He offers it to us through His mercy and grace. Our job is to seek Him, spend time with Him, communicate with Him. We are to know Him and make Him known. There is no greater gift you will ever receive in this life than God’s love…turn away from sinful thoughts and ways and trust in the Lord. Amen.
“Dear friends, let us love one another, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has become a child of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 Here is how God showed his love among us. He sent his one and only Son into the world. He sent him so we could receive life through him. 10 Here is what love is. It is not that we loved God. It is that he loved us and sent his Son to give his life to pay for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God loved us this much, we should also love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love one another, God lives in us. His love is made complete in us.“
1 John 4:7-12 NIRV
