Unconditional Love

John 15:9
“As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love.”

God is Love. It’s beyond our understanding…but God is constantly giving unconditional love because that is Who God Is. That means God expects nothing in return. It seems unbelievable because it’s so opposite of most human experience where we love expecting something in return. See how Jesus receives the Love of God…and in turn gives it to others…expecting nothing in return. He gives the ultimate example on the cross…showing love in the face of total rejection. If we receive the Love so freely given to us and then in turn give it…also expecting nothing in return…a beautiful cycle is created…as this Love is returned to God…for God is in all people and all things. When this happens…the kingdom of God is at hand!
