Sunday, September 10, 2023


Good evening friends, brothers and sisters.

What a delight to be here at Martin’s Crosswinds at this time for a life-changing conference! I can promise you, after you dedicate your attention to unconditional love from seasoned speakers, from different perspectives, and world belief systems, your level of positive energy will increase, your confidence and comfort with your neighbor will go up, and your ability to pursue your dreams will be galvanized.

How many of you are happy to be here tonight? Express your happiness by a show of hands.

How many of you expect to benefit from tonight’s event? If you expect some practical tips to help address some issues in your life, say hi.

You are an amazing audience! Tonight, I want you to know that I love you, I value you, I respect you. I trust that you will find that your time here with us pondering on unconditional love is one of your most valuable investments.

Congrats Elisha and team for the success of the conference!

As we are in high spirits, let us do something special. Let us make some declarations of love. Now join your hand together in sign of prayer and say, I love you God. Put your hands over your heart and say, I love myself. And turn to your neighbor and say, I love you neighbor.

If you make these declarations of love every day, you will condition yourself to live a better life. Why Am I saying this? Because whenever we think love, speak love, or act in love we benefit from a burst of dopamine and good feelings. Whoever and whatever we apply love to flourishes and expands.

If we love God unconditionally, we will experience the fulness of love, as Jesus said in John 14:23, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My father will come to them and make our home with them”.

If we love ourselves unconditionally, we will take good care of ourselves, we will develop our minds, and we will control our emotions.

If we love our children, our partners, our neighbors, our bosses and co-workers unconditionally, we will serve them well, we will be generous to them, and we will develop fruitful relationships with them.

If you love your clients and your business unconditionally, you will prosper.

Now, and this is the beauty of unconditional love, instead of trying to observe all the laws on the books, just love. Jesus said in Matthew 22: 37-40 (MSG), “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.”

Love is the master key that opens the door to power, peace, happiness, and prosperity. Japanese author, Dr. Masaru Emoto, wrote an impressive book, “The Hidden Messages in Water”, in which he revealed his experiment on the impact of love on water. Using high-speed photography, Dr Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns.

Dr Emoto and his team exposed water to classical music, the resulting crystals were elegant, beautiful and well-formed. When exposed to words or phrases like “Thank you”, or positive expressions like “Let’s do it!” on pieces of paper and wrapped around the bottles of water with the words facing in, the water created beautiful hexagonal, attractive, well-formed crystals.

Dr Emoto pointed out that the most beautiful and delicate crystal that he had so far seen was formed by water exposed to the words “love and gratitude.” It was as if the water had rejoiced and celebrated by creating a flower in bloom.

In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, words or phrases formed fragmented, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors and malformed crystals at best.

A study of 756 young and middle adults conducted by Shelley Taylor and associates in 2013 found that those who experienced a lack of affection in childhood were more stressed and had greater disease risk than those who received warmth and affection from their parents. A lack of true unconditional love in childhood isn’t just challenging—it’s traumatic. This type of trauma is known as relational trauma. Children who feel that parental love may be taken away at any moment experience chronic, ongoing anxiety and stress.

Self-love is critical to mental health and overall wellbeing, yet according to a survey by Vitagene 65% of people admit that they need more love for themselves in their lives.

Only unconditional love can help live a healthy and happy life. Only unconditional love can endure and persevere through thick and thin to nurture relationships, grow successful businesses, and support prosperous societies.

Renowned author Brian Tracy said, “The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.”

I also like this thought of Martin Luther King Jr who said, “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

Unconditional love is good feelings blended with timeless principles. Unconditional love is a journey, not a destination. The Holy Scriptures give us a vivid description of unconditional love in 1 Corinthians 13.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.

As you are hearing these words from the Bible, do you feel that you can love unconditionally? Are you impatient or irritable? Do you dwell on wrongdoing? Do you often think evil of others or hold bitter thoughts about them? Do you feel uncomfortable knowing that God is always with you?

After pondering these questions, if you find that you fall in any of these categories, then it’s time to start nurturing unconditional love. You will know that you really love when you are ready to endure all things for the subject or the object of your love.

As we want to transform the world, why don’t we start by cultivating and practicing unconditional love until it becomes second nature?

Thank you. God bless you.
