Fervent, loving intercession
Alupoaicei continues: Yes, God loves you for who you are. Even more important, He loves you because of who He is. The Bible says that God is love in its purest form, and He cannot defy His own nature (1 John 4:8; 2 Timothy 2:13). Growing up in the church, I’d always been taught that God loves us in spite of who we are. The doctrine of His love had always been offset by the idea that we’re all just sinners deserving of hell and, let’s be honest: God loves us grudgingly and offers us grace despite the fact that we’re such terrible people. But that’s not unconditional love, my friends. That’s conditional love. And conditional love is not really love at all.
