There is nothing that I can do; there is nothing that you can do to cause God to love you any more or any less. Nothing! That freaks me out! That blows my mind if I think about it.
“You mean, nothing? God’s going to love me unconditionally? Irrationally? With a one-of-a-kind love?”
There is nothing I could do right now to cause God to love me any more or any less. That’s what Scripture says. Now some of you are thinking, “Oh, this is a great message. God loves me unconditionally? There is nothing I can do to cause God to love me any more or any less? I guess now I can go buck wild! I can just do whatever I want to do! This is great! I love Fellowship Church! Ed, I love you. Thank you for sharing that with me. I will go out and go crazy, man!”
Ahhhh! No, no, no, no, no. No—no—no.
Yes, God loves us unconditionally, irrationally. There’s nothing we can do to cause God to love us any more or any less. That’s a fact. We can count on it. It’s a promise of God.
However, for us to access the fullness of the unconditional love, there are some conditions that we must meet. What’s the key to the Christian life? What’s the key to discovering the irrational, unconditional love of Jesus?
I’ll tell you what the key is. It’s one word—obedience. That’s it. Trust and obey, there’s no other way. Obedience is the key that unlocks the door to this deep, unconditional, irrational love. Here’s what’s so interesting. A lot of people are experiencing the unconditional love of God, but they don’t even know it. They’re walking through life without tapping into the power of God’s love. They don’t even know it!
