God forgets (chooses not to remember) your sins.
God remembers (chooses not to forget) your work and love.
While God does not need our love, He welcomes our expressions and displays of it given to Him. While God does not need love, we (His creatures) do. In this verse from Hebrews, we see that we can love the One who needs nothing by loving those who do experience such need. We love God by loving others.
In reference to Jesus’ reply to the question regarding the most important actions anyone can do (“Love God and your neighbor”), Andrew Wilson wrote …
The truth of that statement can be illustrated regarding my family. If you told me that you loved me yet also told me that you do not love my wife (I know you wouldn’t, but let’s pretend), you would not really love me. Or if you expressed love for two of my children and not all three, the love would be sorely lacking.
John, the disciple, expressed the truth strongly.
