Selfless Love

All my life I’ve heard, “We don’t deserve everything God has gave us.” And I will say this is correct, to an extent. No, we didn’t deserve what Jesus done for us. He was beaten, He was pierced, hung on a cross just to die for our foolish ways. How was that fair? How is that a fair deal for Jesus, but that’s the thing, God doesn’t work fairly or who deserves what. 

Fairness is not in His vocabulary. He seen that we were in trouble, heading down the wrong road, and stepped in and done something about it. Fairness is the least of His mind. With God, it’s not about who deserves what, it’s about what God done to set us free, and if we accept that freedom. That’s what this is all about, freedom from our past. This isn’t undeserving love, this is selfless love.

One thought on “Selfless Love

  1. Such comforting words knowing how much our Heavenly Father loves us. One of my favourite scriptures is 1John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
