Inspired by.... unconditional love

My favorite part of the Christian message is the vast, limitless, and unconditional love of God. It is what drew me to Christ in the first place as a teenager and it anchors me to the faith even today. 

I love the section of the Gospel of Luke when Christ talks to the other thieves being crucified with him - the one thief mocks Christ, but the other confesses his sin and confesses Jesus' role as Messiah and Christ offers the thief some thing eternally greater than a simple rescue from the cross - eternity with Him.

That example of love challenges me to love others well and to strive to love them without condition.
