A Love Ministry, Part 1: Love Is Unconditional

For You From The Word

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13:7, ESV)

For You To Think About

First in a series about what it means to be a “love ministry”

women helping womenBirthmothers is a love ministry. We spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ by offering unconditional, one-on-one support and life-affirming, adoption-informing resources to anyone who faces an unplanned pregnancy.

A love ministry carries out its work through positive, life-affirming relationships. (An activist ministry, on the other hand, carries out its work in campaigns designed to achieve an end.)

In His ministry, Jesus Christ modeled unconditional love. He demonstrated how to serve others with a love that had no limits. Jesus loved others freely regardless of the beneficiary’s status, circumstances, situation, or response.

Paul described such love: it “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things” (1 Corinthians 13:7).

In ministry, unconditional love is offered to a woman or man who faces an unplanned pregnancy. This love is given consistently regardless of the person’s social, financial, religious, or educational status … it is love given regardless of the circumstances of the pregnancy or situation the person now faces … it is love given regardless of the woman or man’s response.

Our core ministry focuses on offering unconditional love to those we serve.

For You To Pray

Loving Father,
Thank You for sending Jesus to model unconditional love. Help us to offer love without limits to women and men who face an unplanned pregnancy.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
