LOVE OF GOD - Bro. T. Stephen

I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of Romans 8:38,39  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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

From the above context we learn from the writings of Apostle Paul , all about  an amazing summary of what God has done for us. He started with how sin had separated us from God.  He shows us that by our works we could never obtain a right standing with God. Next he illustrates how God provided a way apart from the law in which we can be justified by faith. And this has been Gods plan for salvation.   Then he tells us that since we have been justified in this way we have peace with God. He reveals that the gift of His grace was much more than the trespass ever committed.  Paul warns us about living according to the flesh, and teaches us how to live according to the spirit so that we will not fulfil the desires of the flesh.

Paul’s revelation of God’s love was so amazing. The inexpressible depth of God’s love towards condemned   mankind was demonstrated when God sent His only son to be our Saviour, who took the punishment for our sin on the cross. This was a plan that was conceived in the heart of God.  It was   a satanic power that has enslaved humanity since Adam’s fall – but all who trust in God, for salvation will be saved.

The Bible says,   all are separated from God by sin. Everyone born of a woman is under the sentence of death.  However, Paul then contrasts the sin of man, with the goodness of God. Paul finally reaches his joyful conclusion with the most astonishing promise and wonderful truth that is given to all who believe,  that nothing can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord,  nothing visible or invisible, nothing in the physical realm or the spiritual sphere, nothing in the heavens above, the earth beneath, or in the waters under the earth can separate us from God’s gracious and everlasting love.  Nothing past or present or future can separate us from the love of God, Lord. Nothing, whether it is something good or something evil, no wicked scheme of satan, and no mean manipulations of man can disconnect us from our Redeemer. Nothing can snatch us out of our Father’s hand and nothing can remove us from the nail-pierced hands of our Saviour, Who holds us securely, through time and into eternity.

Paul continues to say that, Not even those that are redeemed can separate themselves from His loving care, because Jesus Christ, Himself   has secured our salvation forever, through His sacrifice on the cross. Salvation is the work of God in us.

Having read this message about the unfailing love of God will you make up your mind to love and serve God as Paul the Apostle? Paul  was once persecuting the Christians. He was known as Saul before his conversion. He was a Jewish Rabbi.  He was once on his way to Damascus, to arrest Christians,  but he experiences the divine presence of God. A  light from Heaven,  struck him and he became blind. He also heard a voice from heaven saying, “ Saul, Saul why do you persecute Me?”Out Of his confusion he calls back, “’ Who are you Lord?’’The Lord replied unto him saying, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting.” The Lord sent, Ananias, a devout servant of God to attend  to Saul.  He heals him–sight is regained as something like scales falls from Saul’s eyes.  Ananias comforts Saul, addressing him as a brother.  He baptizes Saul, into the body of Christ. Finally Saul repents of his wrong doings against God; This Saul became Paul, who wrote several Epistles /books, in the Bible. 

Give your heart to Jesus like Paul, and be blessed. He will open new ways and means of living for you. He will expand your business, your education. He will place you in the best education centre and help you to be successful in life. You can do all things well through the strength of Jesus. God cares for you. He invites you to be His child. Accept Him and you shall receive a double fold blessing. Your barns will be filled. He will open the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, and bless you abundantly. God bless you.

Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You for Your unfailing love. And for Apostle Paul who promises that nothing shall separate us from the love of God. Help us to be firm in our faith and steadfast in our love. May God expand our business and the borders of our territory, with joy peace and harmony.

In Jesus name we pray.
