Staying In God's Love


"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?" (Rom.8:35).

I have a very early memory of going into a store with my mom. Somehow, we got separated and I went into panic mode. I ran around looking up and down the aisles for her and when I saw her I sprinted in her direction. What a surprise I got when the woman I thought was my mom turned out to be another lady in the same colored coat. My cries were loud enough for my mom to hear them and we were reunited. Separation can be a terrible thing. It is separation that the apostle Paul is speaking about in today's verse. "Who shall separate us from the love of God" is asked here. This question is of vital importance to the Christian because it has to do with the possibility or impossibility of one being lost under any circumstances. I feel that the destiny of man's soul, is wrapped around the way the question is answered, and will determine how he or she lives... Keeping this in mind, as we look at the phrase love of God, we see that it can possibly carry two meanings. The first is Christ's love for man... If one is the accept this meaning, it still does not prove the doctrine of the impossibility of apostasy. God loved the whole world enough that He sent Jesus. Jesus loved man so much that he died for all. Though all of this, Jesus made it clear that all will not be saved. .. The phrase love of God, evidently means man's love for God. No one would think after reading the rigorous things mentioned in the context surrounding this question, that there is anything that would hinder Christ's love for us. That being said, some might think that the hardships we endure for Christ might cause our love for Him to diminish. This week, we will examine Paul's question, so that we may answer it correctly...

Have a great start to your week... Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
