God greatly loves His creation, He gave man His mercy (not getting what one deserve=punishment) and His grace (getting what one does not deserve=salvation). He gives His love to all things regardless of what it did to Him. Man’s personal standing with God does and will not affect His love for man, not because man is worthy of God’s love, but because God is Love.
Man (saint or sinner) receive God’s love because God is simply love. And one cannot point to one’s status or deed for basis of worthiness. One has to point to God and God alone. This will keep us in humility but at the same time confident that we can come to God freely because He loves us.
I do not deserve His love and all that He is giving me, but I thank Him because He loves me, not because of who I am, but because HE LOVES ME.
I John 4:7-8
GOD IS LOVE!
