Thought for today – 04/12/2011

“Jesus wanted us to grasp the reality of God’s unconditional love. I’m convinced that’s why on the night before he died he prayed that all believers would live in unity to let the world know — and this phrase blows my mind every time I read it — “that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me” (John 17:23 NIV). Did you catch the last phrase? Jesus said he wants us to know that God loves us as much as he loves him. God the Father loves you as much as he loves Jesus. He loves you, his imperfect son, as much as he loves his perfect son.”
