Unconditional Love, Watercolour card
Day 30 (Thursday)
Jesus announced the coming of God’s reign—
a commonwealth not of domination
but of peace, justice, and reconciliation.
He healed the sick and fed the hungry.
He forgave sins and freed those held captive
by all manner of demonic powers.
He crossed barriers of race, class, culture, and gender.
He preached and practised unconditional love—
love of God, love of neighbour,
love of friend, love of enemy—
and he commanded his followers to love one another
as he had loved them.
How would summarize Jesus life, work and meaning?
Of what “manner of demonic powers” have you been freed?
What barriers has Jesus crossed for you?
How does your life proclaim or bear witness to Jesus’ unconditional love?
