Love Never Fails - Love Has No Boundaries

Love Never Fails - Love Has No Boundaries

I know this will create much debate but I would love to get everyone's opinion on this one! This goes against what almost every certified counselor will say, “You have to set boundaries to have a truly intimate love relationship.”I could probably make as many good arguments as they why limits and fences are a good idea in relationships. But wait! If you truly understand love, limits and fences are wrong. I’ll go so far as to say you can not truly love someone if you put up boundaries. At least you cannot love another with the love that Love Himself showed. God has no fences or walls that say, “As long as you follow these guidelines and stay within these painted lines I will love you and allow you to come near to me. Break one of the guidelines, however, and I will withdraw my love from you.”

All Are Welcome

Of course people will say “God put up all kinds of boundaries in the Old Testament. The high priests was the only one who could go into the Holy of Holies. Your right, until Jesus died on the cross and the Temple curtain that was torn in two from top to bottom! You never saw Jesus placing limits on those who approached him. Whores, thieves, tax collectors, lepers, the blind and lame—all were welcome. A hated Roman soldier comes to him requesting help for his ailing servant. “Show him the road!” the crowd is thinking. “This is the enemy. If there are any boundaries to put up, it’s with the godless Romans.” Jesus healed the servant with just his word. A woman caught in the act of adultery is dragged before him. “Now he has to follow the law. There is no way out of this one.”

No Boundaries

You don’t see Jesus setting boundaries in love. But then again, Jesus’ love makes no sense to me. The greatest act of love ever was Jesus’ death on the cross as a sacrifice for our sin. If someone rolled a hand grenade into this office right now, I would have no hesitation to jump on it to save you. But I’m sorry, I could not take my son and throw him on a grenade to save you. I just could not do that. Yet that’s what God did for us. He threw Jesus on the cross to save our lives. When we are strong enough to truly love, boundaries are set to protect others from themselves. What do you think?
