Can there be anything more dangerous for a heart, than a love that is conditional? I doubt it. If you hate me i can close myself to you, so that the things you say, i don’t take to heart. But if i let you in, only to find you loved me only when i was at my best….
This is why the gospel of grace is so important. In it we see a God who loves, far past the reaches of our worst sin. A God whose love cannot be shaken. Nothing heals damaged hearts more than that unconditional love.
P.S. When the Bible says that God is love…it means the unconditional type…because he is always who he is, regardless of the condition you find yourself in.
