God First Loved Us: The Challenge of Accepting Unconditional Love
The Challenge of Accepting Unconditional Love
This book is a profound reflection on God's unconditional love for humanity. Yes, we "know" that God loves us, but if we were to be at all times consciously aware of this unconditional love, to accept it, and to act upon it, says the author, we would find our lives transformed. An entire shift in attitude would be demanded. Accepting God's love is accepting God's total passion for humanity and thus Christ's full passion on the cross. Accepting that God loves us unconditionally eliminates fear of judgment and hell, eliminates emotional distance from God. This demands a new motivation for "being good", motivation that comes purely from our own integrity.
