Everybody Matters!

In God's eyes all people matter and are important to him; he loves everyone unconditionally. In fact, we matter so much that he gave his only begotten son as the ultimate sacrifice so that whomsoever would believe in him would not perish but be saved by His grace. He was intentional about providing us the opportunity to simply repent and be saved. God may hate sin, but he doesn't hate sinners. His son did not come to condemn the world, but so that through his sacrifice the world would be saved. His word acknowledges that we all fall short of God's glory because we are all sinners; believers are simply sinners who have taken hold of God's forgiveness.

Anyone can love the lovable, but it takes a true believer to love the least lovable person. God's word calls on us in 1 Peter 2:17 to Honor all people and love the believers. While God asks us to love those who believe as we do, he does not stop there; he goes on to ask that believers honor all people, regarding them with great respect in spite of who they are or what they believe. We are to love others unconditionally, because everyone matters! Just a little advice to go!
