Sometimes when we do something we know we should not do, we might ask ourselves, “Does God still love me even though I did this?” Some people who are feeling lonely might ask, “Does God love me?”
We should never doubt God’s love for us. He loved us so much that He sent Jesus to teach us how to live right and then to die a terrible death so we could go to heaven. If God loved us so much that He sent His Son to die for us, we can be sure that He will not stop loving us.
However, God does not love the wrong that we do sometimes. When we are disobedient to our parents, even though God told us to obey them (Ephesians 6:1), God loves us but He wants us to apologize to Him and decide to obey our parents like He commanded. God does not love sin but He loves the sinner and wants the sinner to change his life and be like Jesus.
In the end, God will punish all the people who would never obey Him and those who knew His law but chose to disobey it. God does not want to punish anyone but wants everyone to repent and serve Him (2 Peter 3:9). But He is not going to make people obey Him. If people choose to disobey Him, they will be punished.
But those who love God and obey His law will be able to live with Him forever in heaven. Just think of that! We can live with God in a place where there are no bad people, no one dies, no one is ever sad about anything, and the devil cannot tempt us. That is a place where I want to go. I hope you do to.
We must make sure that we do what God commands us to do and try to be like Jesus. When we disobey His law, we must quickly pray to God and tell Him we are sorry and try our best not to disobey His law again. God will give us help to obey because He loves us and wants us to live with Him in heaven.
