Meta conference: October 18-20 in Orlando
Everyone has a story. One that is unique and filled with both beauty and brokenness. And somehow God fits into it. But what if it’s the reverse? What if it’s us, and our stories, that fit into the overarching story of God? What is that story and how do we fit?
From creation to Revelation, in “biblical times” and today, God longs for deep, intimate relationship with people… ALL people. People of every ethnicity, tribe, tongue, and nation. This year at Meta, we will more deeply explore the thread of God’s love, pursuit, and longing for reconciliation with people of all ethnicities and cultures, throughout all of God’s story as found in the Bible.

God is Love: His love is Unconditional, and His love is very different from human love. God’s love is unconditional, and it’s not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn’t love us because we’re lovable or because we make Him feel good; He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son (who also willingly died for us) to restore that relationship.
The Bible tells us that “God is Love” (1 John 4:8). But how can we even begin to understand that truth? There are many passages in the Bible that give us God’s definition of love. The most well known verse is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This is an amazing love, because we are the ones who choose to reject God, yet it’s God who mends the separation through His intense personal sacrifice, and all we have to do is accept His gift.
God’s unconditional love may be a difficult truth for our human minds to grasp. But love is the Lord’s very essence, and He is the source from which all true love flows. There are no restrictions, no limitations, and no exceptions to God’s love. God’s care for us is absolute and genuine, and through creation, He has unmistakably declared that love (Rom. 1:20). But in His most powerful proclamation of all, He sent His Son to die for us, so that we could enjoy His loving presence for all eternity. If you have not yet received Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior,we invite you today to surrender your life to Jesus. It is the best decision that you can ever make in your life. Jesus will restore YOU and give you a brand new life, filled with hope, joy and love.
