God’s Unconditional Love. At a Price that Must be Paid.

God’s Unconditional Love. At a Price that Must be Paid.  
 
 
Amen! God Loves us unconditionally. But let us remember that love come at a price which we must pay. The blood and suffering of Christ;  
 
Philippians 1:29
For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;  
 
1 Peter 4:1 1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;  
 
1 Peter 2:20-21 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.  
 
For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:  
 
1 Peter 3:14-18
But and if you suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are you: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;  
 
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.  
 
For it is better, if the will of God be so, that you suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
 
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:  
 
1 Peter 4:1-2
Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.  
 
1 Peter 4:17 (KJV)
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?  
 
And how do we suffer like Christ? By Walking in His example by the Grace of God through a Faith of a Complete, Desired and Willing Obedience unto the Will of the Father in Heaven.  
 
Becoming Born Again of the water and the blood by which we cannot and will not sin against God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  
 
John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV)
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  
 
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  
 
Ephesians 1:11-14 (KJV)
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
 
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.   13  In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
 
14  Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.  
 
1 John 3:9-11 (KJV)
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.  
 
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  
 
11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
