God's love



Rom 8:28-39

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified:and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
He that, spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
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.



This wonderful Bible verses are the ones that I am going to be memorizing during the months of January and February.

Isn’t God’s love amazing?. As I read these verses I am reminded once again of God’s unconditional love. I think we are so selfish. We talk about love, but eventually, if hurt enough, we will turn from that love, and we will say we are doing it out of self preservation. Too many lies, too many times left out, too many things said, too many apologies and pluff…. They can kiss that love goodbye, no more chances, we had enough!.
Still, when we come before God and we kneel before His feet and ask Him to forgive us, He does. God doesn’t count the times we let Him down, the times we have chosen out path without any regards of being God’s will or not. The many times we chose to please our flesh, knowing that wouldn’t please our Savior. The times we were like Jonah, and run away from His will, His calling to our lives; Or we did it, with as little desire as we could put into it, as if we were saying “ Fine I am doing it, but I don’t have to enjoy it”. Still God is out protector, our shelter, our high tower. He is the one that waits for us like the Father of the prodigal son and makes a fest when we return. The One we can always turn to. The One that made us more than conquerors. The One we can always count on. The One that spared not His Son, but delivered Him up for us.



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.
