Unconditional Love of God - Bro. T. Stephen

My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We are going to celebrate Easter! Many of you might have fasted during the lent season. Several of you would have strengthened yourself spiritually during this season. While some people do not bother at all.  But our Lord desires to be connected with us always. This is what we read in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

It is our Lord’s desire that none of us should perish but inherit eternal life.  He died for our sins and rose again on the third day. There is no recompense for this unconditional love in this world.

We read in the Bible in John 8:1-11 about a woman who was caught in adultery. The scribes and pharisees brought her to Jesus and set her in the midst of everyone and said, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Moses in the law has commanded that such should be stoned. But what do you say?” Jesus looked at them and said, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one. At last, Jesus was left alone with the woman. Jesus looked at her and asked, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you? Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more.” Dear children of God, just look at the unconditional love God had for this woman! He removed the darkness from her and made His light to shine in her!

He shed His precious blood on the cross demonstrating His redeeming love so that we might prosper. Jesus transformed the life of the woman caught in adultery. We read in Romans 5:8 that “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

While we were yet sinners, He revealed His unconditional love for us. In Romans 5:11 we see – We were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more certain, having been reconciled, that we will be saved by His life. Moreover in 2 Corinthians 5:17,18 we read, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.

Jesus gave the woman caught in adultery a second chance by forgiving her sins. He reconciled with her and opened a way for her to walk in the light. Similarly, He is giving us a second chance – He is calling us to forsake the life of sin and come to the cross.  Arise out of your depression. He will transform us into a new creation.

Beloved children of God, Jesus died and rose on the third day so that we do not perish. So great is His love for us. He desires that we live a holy life and inherit eternal life. So, let us reconcile with God by confessing our sins to experience salvation.  Let us not sin anymore!

Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. The wage of sin is death, but you desire to give us eternal life. Make us worthy to receive it.  Hide us in your unconditional love.  Have mercy on every young person just like you had mercy on the woman caught in adultery. Show them your mercy. Obliterate all their shackles and bring them into light. Let every person afflicted with depression and considering suicide find freedom today! Lord especially remove anything that you detest from our lives. Forgive us and transform us into a new creation.

In Jesus name
