Unconditional Love

Unconditional love is hard to understand and even harder to do.

I like to define unconditional love as; choosing to love and accept someone even though you know all their faults.

The world’s way is to choose not to love and throw people to the side when they think they will be hurt by them, saying, “I don’t need this.”

Jesus displays unconditional love when He chooses Judas. In John 6:64, “But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.”

Jesus knew the prophesies about Himself and knew for thirty pieces of silver He would be betrayed, yet He spent all the years of His ministry loving Judas, the one who would betray Him.

I believe Jesus was willing to spend those years with Judus, loving him, giving him every opportunity to change.

To be like Jesus is to love the person anyway, knowing it might be you who is able to reach them.

Father, help us to be like Jesus and love everybody unconditionally in prayer that we might be the person that can help them. In the name of Jesus, amen.

  1. That was the most beautiful post, and a most beautiful prayer as well; I have tried to stay true to my Christian faith in spite of the fact that my uncle and aunt, in whom I am living with now since my stepfather passed away, are cursing/swearing in front of me, even saying Jesus’ name in vain; So far, God has not let me fall away from Him, and no matter how hard I would be trying, I have to keep on praying for my aunt, uncle and my cousins that they would know who Jesus really and truly is. I ask everyone to pray also that my family would repent of their sins and invite Christ Jesus into their hearts. Thank you-JW
