How can God be passionate about his glory and really love sinners at the same time? It seems unreconcilable. If you can't feel the tension than you are either seeing God as less than holy or yourself as more righteous than you actually are. Here is the good news that reconciles God to sinners:

"It was not for his own sin that the Father bruised the Son. It was because he wanted to show us mercy. He wanted to forgive and heal and save and rejoice over us with loud singing. But he is righteous. That means his heart was filled with a love for the infinite worth of his own glory. But we were sinners. And that means that our hearts were filled with God-belittling affections. So to save sinners, and at the same time magnify the worth of his glory, God lays our sin on Jesus and abandons him to the shame and slaughter of the cross." (The Pleasures of God,  John Piper 146)
