We don’t have to fear that God will withdraw His love when the rough unfinished areas of our heart are exposed by our words or actions. When we surrender to God’s passionate and generous love for us just as we are, it is that very love that will cleanse our hearts, empower us to change direction, and continue to change us for the better as we walk with Him. Soon we start treating others with more mercy, acceptance, and honor. It is a beautiful and supernatural process.
“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
