God's unconditional Love

First things first, the Bible teaches that God's love for humanity is indeed unconditional.

A love that is not based on our actions or circumstances, a love that is just there, always present, and always ready to embrace us.

And the best part is that God's unconditional love is freely given to all of us.

Here is what I like to call a truth bomb- The love contract that God has signed for us was signed with the blood of Jesus on a wooden cross over 2000 years ago. God loved you first. He loves you sacrificially and He loves you personally.

4. Matthew 22:37-39: "And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.38 This is the great and
