My wife, Jamy, is an awesome mommy! One of the sweetest things she does is say to our kids, “love you forever!” Then she gives kisses. Melts Daddy’s heart every time!
How much more does God love us?
Romans 8:35-39 is a beautiful picture of God’s love for us. It teaches us that there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that can separate us from His love. Nothing. No one. No oppression or circumstance. Nothing we can do or say.
In my last post, I wrote that we have nothing to fear thanks to the God we serve. Verse 37 teaches that the love of God makes us conquerors. Tribulation? Handled. Danger? Not an issue. The sword, persecution… anything? No match for His love. Strong words. Stronger God.
The end of verse 39 says that the love of God is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus Christ was both the perfect example of HOW to love and the perfect gift OF love. Love personified and exemplified. He served and He saved.
We are never alone. We are victors through the love of our Father.
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. I John 4:10
