We cannot experience true love until we know that God has first loved us in Christ. We cannot love unconditionally, until we believe we are loved unconditionally. How? God sending His Son, to the cross, His death, and His resurrection. If we are so loved by God then it ought to inspire us to love. We are to love out of the fullness of God's love.
However, we do not earn God's love by our acts of love toward each other. We are not mandated to create or develop a quality of love. Rather, we are to love outwardly toward others what we received personally from God.
1 John 4:7-8 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
How do you love others conditionally or unconditionally? Do we love others with the same love that we received from God?
