Oh, What Love!
Adapted from an excerpt of Discover True Love by Arthur Meintjes
The Hubble telescope has taken amazing pictures of galaxies being “born.”
One of the clouds they’ve photographed looks like a hand and has a “finger” that is 30 billion light years long. The awesome God who created this is for you.
So many times, we read the Bible or listen to a message for someone else. But the fact is that God has done everything for you. Believe it! Make it personal because God is a personal God.
“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” —Romans 8:32
God gives us all things freely. The good news of Jesus Christ is free. If you want to pay for it or do anything to get it, you can’t have it. You can only have it freely.
“Who can lay a charge against you? Not God, He is the one who justifies you. Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.” —Romans 8:33
God will never bring a charge against you because He is the one who justifies you!
“Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” —Romans 8:34
Who can condemn you? Christ? No, He is the one who died and was resurrected for you. He is at the right hand of the Father interceding for you. When you make a mistake or mess up, He declares you righteous because of what He has done.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” —Romans 8:35
Who can separate you from the love of Christ? No one and nothing can!
We need to become persuaded that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ. “But Arthur, you don’t know my life and what I have done.” No, my friend. You don’t know our God and His love for you.
You need to become fully persuaded in your heart and mind that nothing at all can ever separate you from the love of God. No person, no circumstance, no situation, no devil, nothing at all can separate you from the love of God!
