What Does God think of Sinners?

Scripture gives us the answer.

Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." In this verse and as well as the well known verse John 3:16, we find no conditions placed on God's love for people. God doesn't say, "as soon as you accept Jesus, and clean up your act, I'll love you; " nor does He say, "I'll love you if you promise to love Me." In fact, in Romans 5:8, we find just the opposite. God desires us to know that His love is unconditional, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us while we were still sinners. We didn't have to clean up, and we didn't have to make any promises to God for Him to love us sinners. His love for us has always existed, and because of that, He did all the giving and sacrificing long before we were even aware that we needed His love.

God is Love, and His love is very different from human love. God's love is unconditional, and it's not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn't love us because we're lovable or because we make Him feel good; He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He gave Jesus His own Son, so we could enter into a relationship with Him.

God thinks the world of sinners.
