Does God love me even though I keep sinning?

Have you ever pondered on this, “does God love me even though I keep sinning?”

Do you see yourself as a sinner? Are you tormented by guilt? Have you descended so far into sin? Or are you always overcome by a particular even as a christian and have been repeating the same sin over and over to an extent” that you’re now wondering, “Does God still love me even though I keep sinning?”

You don’t have to worry yourself further because the answer is that God loves you.

Yes, God loves you because He is love and cannot but love you.

Does God love me even though I keep sinning?

How can God still love me?

Am a sinner, but does God love me even though I keep sinning?

“I am a sinner. I have disappointed God and have failed Him not once, not twice, not even thrice, but countless times. Oh, I have done so much evil,” might be your thoughts.

Maybe you just committed the same sin you vowed to God you would never commit again. And you made promises and vows to God and even told Him that if you commit the same sin again, He should do this or that to you, or even kill you.

Or were you raised in a Christian home? You have heard about God. But you are still living in sin and have gone so deep into it. Such situations can really trouble one’s conscience, mind, and belief.

This situation can make you doubt the personality of God. If you have really experienced this, I believe you might have wondered, “How can God still love me?”

God loves you!

Let me reiterate myself.

God still loves you!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 (KJV).

The word “world”, in this verse, does not represent those who are righteous, saints, or good people, rather, sinners and evil people because the bible says that all have sinned (Romans 3:23).

Romans 5:7-8, For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (NKJV)

Perhaps you have received Jesus as your Lord and Savior and are still sinning. And you are also wondering, how can God still love me?

God still loves you!

1 John 2:1-2 (NKJV), My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

Never let the devil deceive you into believing that you have outsinned God’s mercy.

Why will God love me even though I keep sinning?

1. Because He, Himself, is love.

1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (NKJV)

In Greek, “God is love” is ho theos agape estin.

God does not just love us. God is love and love is God.

“Jerry is a boy” and “Jerry is boy” don’t mean the same thing. “Jerry is boy” means that boy = Jerry, but “Jerry is a boy” is not so.

Love, at its highest point, is agape. It exceeds all of our expectations by a wide margin.

The qualities of God’s love are these:

  • Unconditional (Romans 5:8),
  • Sacrificial (John 3:16),
  • Deep (John 15:13),
  • Strong (Romans 8:39),
  • Everlasting (Jeremiah 31:3), etc

If God is so, why won’t he keep loving you? Why will he stop loving you?

I tell you the truth. It is not possible for God to stop loving you. Saul (Paul) was a chief sinner, but God kept loving him.

God, because He is love, still loves you even though you keep sinning.

2. He has commanded us to love the same way.

St. John 15:12-13 (KJV), This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

God’s love for us is unaffected by what we have done, can do, or have. It has nothing to do with who we are. It is consistent and unchanging. God loves both the righteous and the wicked.

St. Matthew 5:44- 45, But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. (KJV)

If God, being a righteous Father, has commanded his Children to love unconditionally, he would also be bound to his word because of his righteousness. (Psalm 138:2).

God loves you so much, even though you keep sinning. He that said love your enemies, cannot hate you because you sin against him.

3. He is a Father.

Can a father hate his child because he errs again and again?


But even if some earthly fathers can hate their children, our heavenly Father cannot. His heart is always towards us, wanting us to repent and return to him so that we can be safe and saved, for in him is safety and salvation.

Jesus narrated a parable about the prodigal son who squandered his father’s resources and then considered returning to his father’s house. His father’s willingness to accept him and his celebration of his son’s return shows that his heart was after his son even while he was away.

Will God stop loving me?


God will never stop loving you.

God doesn’t possess love as a virtue. He is love. No one can ever love better than He does. And His love suffers long, is kind, and does not get easily provoked. (1 Corinthians 13:4-5).

Because God’s love is everlasting, he cannot stop loving you even though you keep sinning.

What God’s Love does not guarantee

1. A License to keep sinning

1 Corinthians 13:6 says that Love does not rejoice in iniquity.

Though God keeps loving you so much, even though you keep sinning, he hates sins so much.

By saying that God’s love is everlasting, I am not supporting hyper-grace teaching.

Hyper-grace teaching stresses God’s grace to the exclusion of other essential doctrines, like repentance and confession of sin. Hyper-grace teachers say that a believer never needs to confess and repent of sin because God has already forgiven all our past, present, and future sins. They say God only sees righteous people when He looks at us, even though we willfully continue in sin. But apostle Paul asked about this, in Romans chapter 6, to which he answered, “God forbid!”

The love of God is, therefore, not a license to continue in sin.

2. An escape from the consequences of sin, if we continue in it.

God loves us even though we keep sinning, and he can’t stop loving us, but that does not make sin so safe. It can never be a reason to continue in sin, no matter what our reasons are.

God’s love for us does not make sin safe, I reiterate.

Consider this.

Let’s take God to be a caring and superb doctor and sin as a poison. Does the care and expertise of the doctor make poison safe to take?

Because the doctor is caring, it is never a license to keep taking such a lethal substance.

Sin can be sweet at the moment, but it is never safe. If it is for God, he loves us even though we keep sinning, and that is why he does not want us to continue in sin. Because of love, he is calling you to return to Him. If you really believe it, He can help you overcome that sin.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people's conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance. (AMP)

3. It does not guarantee eternal security.

Many are asking this question, “How can a loving God send someone to hell?” It sounds contradictory that Love can do that. If we, being humans, conclude that it is not good for God to let unrepentant sinners pay their justifiable price, then we have declared ourselves, though full of wickedness, to be more loving than God.

We must concur with the scripture that God is love and that all He does is perfect.

God loves you even though you keep sinning, but He will not just accept you into his kingdom while you refuse to love him back.

What should we do seeing that God loves us this much?

Because God loves us, is the very reason we should love him back.

The truth is this: if He didn’t love us at first, we couldn’t have even been able to think of loving him back. We can love him only because he has first loved us. (1 John 4:19)

How can we then love him back?

Jesus said if you love me, keep my commandment. And sin is popularly said to be “simple instruction neglected.”

Dear Reader, God loves you so much. Why won’t you respond to his love by loving back?

Have you ever loved a person, but the person does not love you back? When such is the case, how do you feel? Do you feel good that the person you love so much and are ready to give your life for does not even care about you?

Because God loves you so much, even if you keep sinning, is why you have to cry to him to help you stop grieving his heart by sinning.

I hope this article has been of help to you. I pray God will help you love him back.

God’s grace!
