Jesus said, He who has been forgiven much loves much, and he that has been forgiven little loves little.
(partial paraphrase}. luke 7:41-47

Therefore the realization that Christ paid all our sin debt should result in the true believer loving God with all his heart.

“We love Him because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

The only questions that remain for us to ask ourselves are;

To what degree do we perceive we were in need?

and,

To what degree do we believe that Jesus met that need on the cross?

“For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”Romans3:23

Everyone who has ever lived is less than perfect, except Jesus Christ.

We all come short whether by an inch or a mile. Anything less than perfect and Holy is imperfection and unholiness.

So there is no difference, for all come short.
So all of us owes everything to God.

We have all been forgiven much.
We can all love much.
