My little dog Coco is such a sweet little teddy bear. When I get home from a long day he gets all excited. He squeals and wines for my attention. He does not care if I am tired. He does not care if I smell bad. He does not care if I failed at work that day. His love and excitement to see me, spend time with me is unconditional. God’s love for us is even more unconditional.
There are so many things in this life that are conditional. People’s love is often conditional. We put values and worth on so many worldly things. We as humans often struggle with sins. We can often feel like we are distant from God when we are living in sin. But the great thing about the love of Jesus is it is much like my dog Coco. We do not have to clean ourselves up first. We can come as we are, sin, struggles and everything in between. For the love and acceptance of Jesus’s embrace is unconditional. It is offered to all and it is through his healing we gain the ability to turn from sin. He transforms our lives as we abide in him.
“If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:15-19
