DAY 18 THURSDAY: APRIL 2019

GOD’S LOVE IS WITHOUT CONDITION!

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).

The love of God is without condition. God did not wait for us to be righteous and perfect before extending His love to us. Every Christian is expected to emulate God by demonstrating his unconditional love to his neighbor. In the opening text, the Bible says that God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. It is highly the duty of every Christian to demonstrate God’s unconditional love to everyone irrespective of tribe, religion and culture. God’s unconditional love is known as, “Agape” in the Greek context.

Apostle Paul was able to excel in his ministry than all his contemporaries because he had this notion in mind. He loved unconditionally all that he came in contact with irrespective of their background, social status and religion. That is why the Bible states in 1 Corinthians 9:22, “To the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” Of course, God’s unconditional love gives a believer the grace and ability to adjust and readjust his life for the benefit of mankind.

The agape love of God is unconditional without any strings attached. The Scripture says that God loves us even while we were still sinners and enemies to Him. That is the reason why the Bible says, “Loves suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil” (1 Corinthians 13:4-5). Therefore, every Christian should take note of the fact that agape love is a debt that he owns to God and to his neighbor forever.

Daily Tip: God’s love is unconditional with no strings attached forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13).
