Edward Welch on “Contraconditional Love”

“Perhaps we could call it ‘contraconditional’ love. Contrary to the conditions normally required to know God’s blessing, He has blessed me because His Son fulfilled the conditions. Contrary to my due, He loves me. And now I can begin to change, not to earn love, but because of love.”
