Unconditional Love ~ August 15

Unconditional Love

I want to love like that!

Love your neighbor as yourself. Love does no harm to its neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Romans 13:9-10

Love is the key. God’s greatest command is to love Him, and when we love Him and allow His love to live within us, we will obey every law and rule, because we will become like Him and one with Him. And, so there’s no confusion, obeying God’s laws is not the same as being under God’s laws. When God’s chosen people were under the law, there was condemnation; when we love God and give ourselves over to Him, we no longer obey His laws out of fear of the consequences, but rather, we obey His laws consequently. We do the right thing because He has given us righteousness by grace, not because we have to earn it.

I haven’t fully grasped the awesomeness of God’s love or learned how to return His love to Him. But I will continue to focus on Him and seek to know, and one day emulate, His complete, unconditional love.

It doesn’t matter what faith we are, or how faithful we are; what matters is we love God and make loving Him our first priority. God loves us and will never do us harm; I want to love like that!
