August 19th 2016 – Unconditional Love, Like Jesus Does

“Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:5)

Unconditional love is not easy. Loving another person even when there is a mess in their life can be difficult, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love.

(2 John 1:5-6) “I am writing to remind you, dear friends, that we should love one another. This is not a new commandment, but one we have had from the beginning. Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one another, just as you heard from the beginning.”

Within each relationship, we come to realize that it’s after the argument that our true love for one another shows. It’s in that moment of tension where the power of Christ comes to life in our hearts and actions. In that moment, the battle rages in our minds, and we have the choice to allow it to overtake us or to take it before Christ. Who are you struggling to love? Take the situation to the Lord and then look for an opportunity to show God’s love to that person. You’ll be amazed at what God will do!

“In growth and maturity, unconditional love is the test. Even the unbeliever loves when all is going well.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the love You have shown me. I know there have been times I have not loved others like I should, and I ask for Your forgiveness. Help me to show the same kind of unconditional love You have shown me because I desire to love You and to love others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
