Do you believe that God’s love for you is unconditional?
From my childhood, I knew that God is holy. He is holy and will always remain holy. Moreover, I want to spend the rest of my life meditating at the holiness of God and ask revelation about this subject. And we all need to fix our eyes on the holiness of God and start loving it and walk in it. Someone said that God’s holiness is represented by all of His attributes put together. He is perfect. However, sin has a way to corrupt our hearts and make us lower our view of God’s holiness.
Growing up in Church, I had a deformed perception of God the Father. I did believe He is holy. However, I also thought that He lives somewhere in heaven and I am somewhere down on earth with no possible connection between us. For me, He was a distant God. He was holy but unapproachable. And I always had the impression that He looks at me and somehow waits for me to make mistakes and then punish me.
Moreover, I also believed that He is angry with me. And that if He ever loved someone, that someone is not me. I did believe He loves the whole world but me and that I was not loveable.
Set free from the lies of the enemy
All the lies I believed about God and many more, hindered my walk with Him and my healing process. Every time I did sin, I felt like I need to earn my forgiveness and God’s love. Little I knew back then that no one can earn God’s love. God changed my world and life through His love. And for the first time in my life, I finally understood that love looks like God. And that I can see God only by faith.
The first revelation of God’s love I did receive while I was in the UK in 2011 to attend the 9-week Flagship School program at Ellel Grange. I was able to learn the truth from the Word of God and then to receive prayer for my inner wounds that were stopping me from receiving His love. God delivered me from the false god I was worshiping in my heart—a god whose love I had to earn.
And to be able to understand that God loves me unconditionally, just as I am, and that He cannot love me more than He already loves me, that was something special. He always loved me at the maximum level, and He will always love me with the same love. This truth melted my heart and helped me to open up and receive His healing from my past rejection. He loves me because He is love and not because of what I do or I don’t do.
and we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
I want to share with you three scriptures that speak volumes about God’s unconditional love:
1. We can see God’s unconditional love when we were without strength
In Romans 5:6 (ESV) we read
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
The word in Greek for weak means weak, infirm, feeble and describes someone who cannot do anything. And not only that, but the Bible says that we were weak and also ungodly.
The tragedy of today is that people do not consider themselves ungodly. Therefore, that is why they do not need Christ, because Christ died for the ungodly, not for the godly. And the problem is that people see themselves as being good and righteous without Jesus Christ. However, the sacrifice of Jesus is just for the people who see themselves lost without Him and not otherwise.
And why did Christ died? In John 3:16 (ESV) we read the reason:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Yes, Jesus Christ died out of love! God loved the world— that is you and I. And He loved the world and not hated the world or was angry at the world. Moreover, it is written that He loved the world— that is the whole world— not just the Jews, or the Greeks.
And what can a weak, infirm and feeble person can do to earn God’s love? Let me give you the answer: NOTHING! We were not able to do anything for God to love us.
2. We can see God’s unconditional love for when we were sinners
In Romans 5:8 (ESV) we read
but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Not only that God loved us when we were weak and helpless, but He also loved us when we were sinners! And one of the definitions of sin is to miss the target or the mark. Therefore, a sinner is someone who is missing the target— a loser. Yet God loved us! And for me, that is a miracle in itself, and it humbles me.
3. We can see God’s unconditional love when we were dead
In Ephesians 2:4-5 (ESV) we read
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace, you have been saved
What can a dead person do to earn God’s love? A dead person cannot do anything to earn God’s love!
And this is how the Bible calls a person without Christ— dead. However, the mystery is that God loved us even when we were dead and not able to do anything to earn His love. We did nothing to earn His love, and we cannot do anything to lose His love for us! Nevertheless, He might not like what we are doing, and He might not agree with our decisions, but He will always love us unconditionally.
However, let us not abuse this truth as many do today. They say: because God loves me unconditionally, I can do whatever I want or because God’s love is unconditional nobody will go to hell, etc. Friends, the reality is that even if God loves the world, there are people who choose to reject His love. And they will end in a place where they will be forever separated from His love. And that place is what the Bible calls hell.
I knew for a long time about God’s love for me in my mind, but not in my heart. It seems like a short way from the head to the heart, but in reality, it is one of the longest ways in the universe. Moreover, I know that many people struggle to receive God’s love for themselves. And I know God can reveal Himself in many different ways and He does not necessarily need someone else to minister to you His love. However, the main thing is to remain open to His ways. I do not know how He will choose to reveal His love to you, but I want to encourage you not to put God in a box.
And I know that without a spirit of revelation and wisdom one will not be able to receive God’s love. It is the same thing for every biblical truth. One can listen to every sermon and read all the books in the world about God’s love. But he or she will never understand they are loved unless they receive revelation. And by this, I do not mean one is not able to know about God’s love in his or her mind. What I do say is that one cannot know this truth deep in his heart—that he or she is loved, unless they receive the revelation of this love for themselves.
Let us pray to receive God’s, unconditional love:
Lord Jesus, pour out in my heart through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5) the love of God. And give me a Spirit of revelation and wisdom (Eph. 1:17) to know You as You are. I need the revelation of Your unconditional love for me. Thank you, Father, for revealing Your heart of love for me and that You love me as I am. In the Name of Jesus, I pray.
Continue to seek the Lord until you have an encounter with His love!
