    Our Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated His unconditional love for humanity by death on the cross in order for us to be reconciled to the Almighty. What remains is for us to emulate His good example and we can fulfill our side of the bargain by loving God back through showing love one to another. Loving one another should not be a once off arrangement but rather a continued way of life. As children of God, the world will get to know who we exactly are if we love and continue in love.
