GOD’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR YOU;
“But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him” (Romans 5:8 MSG).
God’s love for you is unconditional, eternal and perfect. He’s not going to love you more when you get to heaven than He already does today. There’s nothing you could do today, having been born again that’ll make God love you more or less, for His love for you is perfect, and you can’t improve on perfect.
He didn’t love you because you were so holy and never did anything wrong; He loves you because that’s His nature; He cannot “not” love you! When you’re conscious and confident of the Father’s love for you, your faith will be more productive, for faith works by love (Galatians 5:6). More so, there’s no fear in love, for perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18).
When some Christians make mistakes they find it difficult to accept that God would forgive them. So even after asking for His forgiveness, out of ignorance, they think God still holds their sin against them, and as a result, some have lost faith and have even stopped going to church altogether. If you’re in such a situation you need to understand who God is; He is not a man, and He doesn’t count your sins against you because He loves you unconditionally.
Think about it: If God so loved you while you were yet a sinner, and sent Jesus to die for you, how much more will He shower His love on you now that you’ve received abundance of grace, and His wonderful gift of righteousness (Romans 5:17).
You need to understand how God deals with His children when they make mistakes. A man might impose strict penalties on an offender, but God totally blots out all the records of your wrongs when you receive His forgiveness (Isaiah 1:18). He holds nothing against you. In fact, to Him, you never did anything wrong; you’re as perfect as Jesus is because your righteousness is the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
