And the Lord God Still Loves Us”
 
How can He still love sinners like us?
It is His nature.
It always has been, is now and will be forever.
 
Please read the following verses.
 
Psalms 36:1-9
For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord.
1 An oracle is within my heart
concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:
There is no fear of God
before his eyes.
2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself
too much to detect or hate his sin.
3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful;
he has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4 Even on his bed, he plots evil;
he commits himself to a sinful course
and does not reject what is wrong.
 
5 Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justice like the great deep.
O Lord, you preserve both man and beast.
7 How priceless is your unfailing love!
Both high and low among men
find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.
 
I suppose you saw, verses 1-4 describe man in his sin and vs 5-9 describe the perfect Lord God.
 
Wow, the more I read of the Lord God the more I see for needed improvement from me.
On this side of Heaven, we will not achieve His perfection.
 
This doesn’t disappoint me. If the Lord wills, I will die drawing closer and closer to Hom.
 
When in heaven, we will be like the Lord God.
 
As the song says, “I Can Only Imagine. “
