Jesus even loves Charlie Sheen!

How do I know this? Because Romans 5:8 (ESV) says, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

That’s right, Christ died while we were still estranged from Him. And now He stands, like the old Journey song, with open arms, waiting for us to come to Him. I’ve even heard that, despite being God, He says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” (Rev. 3:20, ESV).

So Jesus awaits, with arms open, all who would come to Him. That He loves all those listed above does not mean He approves of what they (or we) do. It simply means that, despite the various labels, He loves them all–He loves us–because of what’s shared by all.

All are people.

All are people in need of a Savior.

Jesus loves even ordinary people.

Jesus loves even ordinary people.

Jesus loves even ordinary people.

Jesus just loves people.

We would, despite our differences, do well to do the same.

Who would you add to the list?
