One of the greatest needs in our world and one of the greatest challenges involves love.
Without understanding God’s love for us we face the obstacle of how to lead others with love. I say this because God loves us for who we are and where we are, unconditionally. Unconditionally is what introduces the challenge.
As Christians who grow and nurture our relationship with God we can easily lose sight of our past life, a time when we were described as helpless, ungodly, sinners, and enemies. In this condition, Paul says God demonstrates His love toward us.
Notice, Paul did not say demonstrated, as in past tense. The word is present active showing that God demonstrates His love now and it continues with no thought of coming to end.
To lead others to the love of God, we must demonstrate the nature of God’s love in ourselves.
We must show love even toward those who are not always the easiest to love. Is it easy? I cannot say it was for Christ, but He did so anyway. Therefore, we can do the same.
