Psalm 36:6
Lord, your love reaches to heaven; your fidelity, to the clouds.

Laws and rules are needed. But when it comes to Jesus…love always had the final say. God’s extreme, extravagant love is so immense…so amazing…so beyond what we can fathom…it boggles the logical and rational left-brain. It’s beyond reason. It’s unconditional. That means “no conditions“! Just accept it. Jesus repeatedly forgave sinners even when they didn’t ask for forgiveness. A legalistic mind cannot handle that! “That’s not fair” it will protest. That’s right…it’s not fair. It has nothing to do with worthiness (Our egos hate this!). You are loved just because you are God’s beloved. It has nothing to do with what you do…but who God is. Allow that to settle in your heart. It will transform you…which is exactly what God wants!
