God’s Love is not for the Undeserving but for the Ill-Deserving

Sometimes, we are so weighed down by our sin, losing sight of our identity in Christ, that we struggle to believe that God actually and personally loves us. We may believe that God loves the world, or individual people in it, but we are less likely to truly believe that God loves us. This is because we struggle to accept that God’s love is pure, unmerited, and free grace. Into this doubt Paul repeatedly brought a freeing truth: Jesus loves you. He cannot love you anymore. You will not the love you any less!

Other times, we are so unfamiliar with our send, often because we don’t really consider it honestly or feel it personally, that we don’t appreciate God’s love.  We neglect to remember that God’s love is not for the undeserving but for the ill deserving.
