Topic: God Loves You Even When You Make Mistakes [December 21, 2016]
But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us. — Romans 5:8
Have you ever wondered if you are good enough for God to love you? Unfortunately, many people believe God loves them only as long as they don’t make mistakes.
Perhaps it was this outlook that caused the psalmist to ask, What is man that You are mindful of him? (Psalm 8:4). Yet the Bible tells us we are God’s creation, the work of His hands, and He loves each one of us unconditionally.
Let’s face it: Jesus didn’t die for you because you were great and wonderful; He died for you because He loves you. God loves you, and He wants you to believe it and receive His love all the time—even when you make mistakes.
Power Thought: God’s love for me is unconditional.
