Unconditional L.O.V.E.

"The feelings of love follow the actions of love." -unknown

What a marvelous statement. I heard this from the KLove online radio this evening. Most of us grow up understanding that "love" is an emotion in which "loving" actions will follow. However, this is only a small portion of true love. Yes, there are feelings of infatuation that help you stay attracted to someone, however, it is destructive to believe that true love is driven from emotions. Unconditional love is seen when it is most difficult to stay in your relationship. None of us are perfect; we certainly all fall short of God's glory. However, Praise the Lord for His word, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" Romans 5:8. Thank you Jesus, not for my sin, but for your strong UNCONDITIONAL LOVE! I Praise you for Victory and wisdom to love You, Ryan, and others as you love and forgive them. Thank you for strength, grace, and mercy to grow in our relationship with you and one another despite our faults. If you take anything away from this short post, please seek God's understanding for how to better love HIS people! He chooses to love even (what we as humans consider) the worst sinners. P.S. I also have news that all of our sins are held accountable and we are no better or worse than anyone who commits murder or adultery. The Bible says that whoever has lustful thoughts commits adultery, and a man who hates in his heart commits murder (Matthew 5:28; 1 John 3:15). Therefore, PLEASE be careful and mindful to love your neighbor! Love one another as Christ loves them, as you would want to be loved in Jesus Name! True unconditional love comes from a choice. 1 John 4:19 says, "We love because He first loved us." Be encouraged to stand firm and love wholeheartedly! Trust in Jesus and know that HE will give you the strength and wisdom you need to truly love others! :) Yay Jesus! God Bless you! :)
