I bet you’ve heard that a thousand times, growing up in the South. “God is Love”. But it’s true. Love is his character. Love is his heartbeat. Love is his passion. But not just any love. Not just mushy gushy love. Not just love like we love. Not just love like I love ranch dressing. Perfect love. Healing love. Unconditional love.
Love without condition. It’s what “unconditional love” means. Love without condition. Love without bounds. Love that breaks down walls. Love that mends broken hearts. Love that is BLIND.
His love doesn’t care how tall you are, how thin you are, how young or old or beautiful you are. God isn’t looking for a blonde or brunette or the quarterback or the straight-A kid. God wants YOU, just the way YOU are.
God loves the ORIGINAL you. The “before sin” you. The you that HE created.
Okay, so what’s the catch?
Just that you have to ask Him to forgive your sins and live in your heart and be your GOD. From there on, it’s a relationship. There will be potholes you run into along the way. You’ll mess up daily. You’ll stub your spiritual toe and scrape your knees, but God IS LOVE and He’ll be there to guide you safely back when you stray one way or the other.
God is love.
