Experiencing God’s unconditional love transforms and changes us in ways we could never imagine. We may think we have to jump through hoops and do all the right things to experience it; however, all we need to do is believe in His love for us. It does not matter to God what we have or have not done—all that matters to Him is our faith in how much He loves us. His love is constant and does not fluctuate. His mercy, offered to us even when we do not deserve it, causes us to change the way we think. Believing in Jesus enables us to receive from Him and empowers us to do things we are unable to do through self-effort. When we struggle unsuccessfully to become better people through our performance, trusting in His love frees us from our sins and gives us success.
