“…… God is love……” 1 John 4: 16
The last several days in my heart and mind I have been pondering some wonderful mysteries. I have come to several conclusions and I thought I would share them here with you today.
“…. God is love….” that is an undeniable fact, and His love is also unconditional. He loves everyone at all times and nothing we can say or do can change that. At our very best or very worst He continues to love us no matter what we have ever done, or what we can ever do. His love is constant and unchanging.
I was pondering His great love and then it hit me….not only is God’s love unconditional, but because of His love and great character God’s grace must be unconditional too. The best definition I have ever found for grace is…unmerited favor. Grace cannot be earned, it is something freely given to us by our Lord. Just take a moment and think about it? Unconditional grace; that is a total game changer. In fact grace of this magnitude totally obliterates karma. Jesus fully bought and paid for everyone of us on the cross. His total sacrifice means our complete freedom in Him for eternity.
Still hanging with me? The rabbit hole goes even deeper. I will now close with one life changing statement. Because of who God is…His mercy is totally unconditional too! I am coming to understand these things and it is completely rocking my world. Unconditional love, unconditional grace and unconditional mercy….truly walking in HIM means we will practice these things in our daily lives, towards ALL people and all the time. If the true Church would rise up and grasp these simple concepts the whole world around us would be transformed. The early Church in the book of Acts turned the world upside down by walking in Love, Grace and Mercy. Now is our time to do the same.
Kirk Out !
P.s. Seems to me that much of the modern traditional “Church” system gets it almost totally wrong where it comes to distributing God’s love, grace and mercy. Most of these “churches” seem to measure and dole out love, grace and mercy like they have an extremely limited supply on hand. Plus they only give to people that meet their predetermined conditions and qualifications for care and aid. When according to God they need to give unconditionally of HIS bountiful unlimited supply.
P.s.s. Jesus met and exceeded ANY and EVERY condition ever seemingly placed upon us for ALL time.
