God is looking for you, even if you do not seek it. God loves you, even if you have forgotten Him. God sees beauty in you, even if you think you have squandered all your talents in vain.聽
Pope Francis

"You may fear that the Lord has passed you by, but it is not so: He who counts the stars, and calls them by their names, is in no danger of forgetting His own children. He knows your case as thoroughly as if you were the only creature He ever made, or the only saint He ever loved. Approach Him and be at peace."
-Charles Spurgeon

"Everyone longs to be loved. And the greatest thing we can do is to let people know that they are loved and capable of loving."

I find it so telling that the Christian denomination (Quakerism) that encouraged developing a personal relationship with God, and allowing yourself to hear directly from God, ended up being one of the most progressive denominations at the forefront of human rights movements.

God is love, but that's not all He is
Luke 16:24 鈥淎nd he cried out and said, 鈥楩ather Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.鈥
We don't like to think about these things but the majority of people will burn in hell (Matthew 7:13-14). They'll live forever, only to endure being burned alive for all eternity.
Unlike what some may think, hell isn't a place hidden from God. All the torment of those in hell will be on full display in heaven, where "the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever鈥 and it'll be "in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb鈥 (Revelation 14:10-11).
We fool ourselves by thinking we can sin as much as we want because Christ's blood covers all those sins that we are willingly chasing after. Yes, Christ's blood does cover our sins if we repent of them (Proverbs 28:13; Matthew 3:8; Luke 13:3; Acts 17:30; 1 John 1:9; etc.).
And what is repentance? As noted by John MacArthur, 鈥淭he Greek word (metanoe艒) behind repent means more than regret or sorrow... it means to turn around, to change direction, to change the mind and will... Repentance involves sorrow for sin, but sorrow that leads to a change of thinking, desire, and conduct of life.鈥
We don't sin so grace may abound even more. As Paul said, 鈥淎re we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?鈥 (Romans 6:1-2).
But if we're free from the law we can sin, right? As Paul also said, 鈥淪hall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be!鈥 (Romans 6:15).
To willingly chase after sin is to let go of the covering of the blood of Christ (Hebrews 10:27).
God is love but He's also a jealous and vengeful God, capable of anger (Exodus 34:14; Psalm 94:1; 1 Kings 11:9). Interestingly enough, this is also the reason why apostate Oprah Winfrey says she has abandoned an orthodox view of Christianity. Far too many people want to just stick with a God who is only love, but dread the thought He should be just as well. He is love but He is also holy.
God is love but His love isn鈥檛 unconditional. As R.C. Sproul said, 鈥淲hen I hear preachers stand up and say that 鈥楪od loves everybody unconditionally,鈥 I want to scream... He鈥檚 placed an absolute condition by which He requires... He commands all men everywhere to repent of their sins and to come to Christ.鈥
Know the God whom you serve according to Scripture.
