Does God Still Love You When You’ve Sinned?

If you’ve been living in sin, you might question whether God still loves you and if He will forgive you.

Jesus promises to accept all who come to Him (John 6:37), and He has already taken all of our sins on Himself (Isaiah 53:6; John 1:29). So no sin, and no amount of sin, is too much for Him to forgive. Trust in His sacrifice for you and let Him have control in your life, and you will be forgiven and saved (Romans 10:9–13; Luke 18:13; Matthew 10:39).

Once we are saved, we can know that we are children of God, and He will continue working in us to make us more like Him. That involves discipline (Hebrews 12:5–11), but He disciplines in love and He is faithful to complete the work He began in us (Philippians 1:6). We are sealed by the Spirit and have an inheritance in heaven (Ephesians 1:13–14; 1 Peter 1:2–5).

Still, we might have to deal with personal feelings of shame and regret. It’s important to move on from the past and focus on the future, as Paul did (Philippians 3:13–14).

For those who are “born again” as children of God, He removes our sins as far as east is from west, and does not hold them against us (Psalm 103:8–14; Hebrews 8:12). He wants us to come with boldness (Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews 4:16). Because of God’s mercy and grace, we are free from the past and can move forward, making the most of our time by serving Him for the rest of our lives.
