Encounter with Jesus – February 15

God’s unconditional love

ROMANS 5.6-11

Sacred Scripture tells us that love is the very essence of what God is ( 1 Jn 4 .7). So if you don’t believe that He loves you unconditionally, you will never really know Him or have genuine peace in your relationship with Him.

How to define love? It is Jesus generously reaching out to humanity, giving Himself to us, and bringing good into our lives, whether we accept Him or not. Romans 5.8 tells us that his love and concern for us are so immense that he gave his life for us when we were still his enemies. The Bible says that He began to express His love to us even before the foundation of the world (Eph 1.3-5). This means that our actions had absolutely nothing to do with His love for us!

God’s concern for us has no condition or restriction, and is not based on our reciprocating his love. Nor does He have more love for “good” people who might seem more worthy to us. He loves us even when we are in sin, even though we have not repented. Does this give us a license to disobey? No, it empowers us to live in holiness, walk in obedience to the Lord, and learn to love Him in the way He deserves. To obey him is to receive the love that God has been offering from the beginning.

But, to experience that wonderful and absolute love that God has for us, you must accept it. Say yes to this extraordinary gift that He wants to shower on you. Indulge yourself and allow it to spill over onto those around you.
