A Love Unconditional

No, it’s not Easter, Good Friday, Resurrection Sunday, Pascha, the Passion of the Christ, Passover, Holy Week, – whichever you observe… Yet, on my mind so strong is the love – the unconditional love that paved the road to the death, burial, and resurrection our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It moves me to tears each time I think about His nail scarred hands…

Ecclesiastes‬ ‭7:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ “Do not say, “Why were the former days better than these?” For you do not inquire wisely concerning this.”

Have you ever been haunted by the past? Has it ever crept up on you and perhaps it gave you some feelers, not necessarily the good kind? That uncontrollable mind, I tell ya! Well, there I was praying – no, complaining to God, because of what I felt I was lacking. I was wanting answers, needing clarity – I had doubt suddenly creep in, and He honestly felt so far away! I pleaded, “If I could just feel Your presence.

In my mind, I knew He had never left me… Still, I allowed the words of others get in there as well and create doubt. Inside, I was a ball of “what if’s and wondering “why?” As if to go back to my past would solve, or even help, my present situation. As the saying goes, “Hindsight is 20/20.” And if I’m honest with myself, that past situation would only exacerbate the feelings I’m feeling.

That’s When It Hit Me!

His love never fails! His love is unconditional. His love does not require signs and wonders. So often I am guilty of asking God to reveal Himself to me. Is this not the same as a significant other demanding, “Prove to me/Show me that you love me.” I’ve had those awful words tossed in my face. It’s impossible! The fact that He died, was buried, and rose again! Well, that’s love! What more can I ask? To know that He did that for me? He saw me as worthy in my filth and said, “Her. I see her. One day she’s going to need to know that she is loved. She needs a Savior to rescue her in the midst of her sins. For her, I’m going to take these stripes on my back, these thorns in my head. I’ll carry this cross on my back. I’ll take the nails in my hands and in my feet. For her, I’ll give my life.”

He gave His life for me and for you – for all the world. There is no greater love than this love unconditional.

Clean – Natalie Grant

“There’s nothing too dirty

That You can’t make worthy

You wash me in mercy

I am clean

There’s nothing too dirty

That You can’t make worthy

You wash me in mercy

I am clean

Washed in the blood of Your sacrifice

Your blood flowed red and made me white

My dirty rags are purified

I am clean”
