a call to sacrifice

We often talk about God loving us unconditionally.
That is a powerful truth that continues revealing God's greatness.
Don't you think that he would like us to learn to love him the same way,
We will learn to love him when we accept him as he is and continue talking
with him even when he doesn't say only the things we want to hear.
Unconditional love is sacrificial.
Jesus challenged his disciples to love one another by laying down one's
life for his friend. John 15:13
Without a total availability to sacrificial love a person will have no capacity
to forgive as God has forgiven.
With sacrificiallove comes joy that cannot be found otherwise.
It's the same joy that will fill heaven one day.
