Romans 5:8 (KJV) But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
*God's love extends far beyond whether or not we are worthy of His care...He loves unconditionally regardless to our circumstance and state of mind. Therefore, why can't we show that same type of love? Why do things have to go our way, be picture perfect, or in accordance to our terms in order to show love to one another? Even more so, why aren't we loving others in order to promote change and provide comfort? There is often a thorough evaluation done before we even show friendliness towards a person...Let alone love them. Now, that's not to say that you should be naive or operate in foolishness. However, if Christ loves us through our mess and suffered in order to provide a better opportunity, then why can't we do the same as we are led by the Father? The standard in which you hold others to is the one you will be held accountable to; therefore, love hard and act to assist in advancing the kingdom by allowing the Holy Spirit to impact your heart.
