God’s Indescribable Love (7/21/2019)
“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 8:38-39).
Paul seems to be almost at a loss for words as he pours forth this appeal for consecration and dedication of true believers. He says that, in view of God’s priceless love for us in providing for our eternal spiritual welfare, who could come along or what could possibly happen that would separate us from the love of Christ?
As we read Paul’s profound message and feel his emotional appeal, we are made to wonder the same thing: who could tear us away from Jesus Christ and from God, thus leading us into an eternity of pain and anguish?
Divinity has done everything possible to clear the way for us to make an abundant entrance into heaven. Surely, we recognize that fact, and surely, we appreciate the fact that we will not be required to suffer anguish in all of eternity because of God’s profound love for us and because of Jesus’ willingness to suffer in our place.
