Most Christians have no problem believing God can love the most vile of sinners and bring them to salvation. Even so, a great many Christians believe that God is displeased with themselves because of the junk they still do. But here's the thing. Yes, God knows about that sin you still hold in your heart, even though you are really good at hiding it from everyone else. Even so, God still loves you just as much as if you did everything perfectly. Instead of trying to love God, invest time thinking about how much He loves you. As the revelation of God's love for you grows, the junk and sin you're still holding onto will fade away and you'll leave it behind. Not only that, but you will also find you love Him more than you ever did with all your trying.
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as the atoning sacrifice for our sins.— 1 John 4:10 (WEB)
