The Unconditional Love of God
 
 
New believers may find it difficult to accept the fact that God loves us just as we are. Much of the world operates by conditional love, which offers approval and acceptance on the basis of performance. So when we first come to Christ, there is often a natural tendency to assume we must strive to “deserve” our blessings, such as monetary wealth, loving families, and solid careers.
Divine love, however, can never be earned by human effort. There is absolutely nothing we can do to make God love us more or to influence Him to stop loving us. (Romans 5:8But God (demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ;1 John 4:8The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. ) Many believers understand this intellectually but have trouble believing it deep down in their heart.
No matter what has occurred in your past or what you feel right now, the Father’s love has always been freely given to you. God pours His love upon us without exception—no ifs, ands, or buts. He did not begin to love you at the moment you invited Him into your life. Nor did He begin to love you when you first started going to church or when you rose from the baptismal waters. In truth, God never “began” to love you at all; He imply always has. From the creation of the world, God knew you and loved you.
