Good afternoon, welcome to the month of May, it’s the fifth month of the year already.
Today, we’re just going to continue from last week’s Sunday nugget, where we started talking about the father’s love. I want to bring us to the book of Romans where Apostle Paul expounded on the love of the father.
Romans 8: 31-39 NIV
“31 What then shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare His own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written: ‘for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
I encourage you to read this up in other versions of the Bible too.
This love is amazing, it is the understanding of this great love that compels us to love him, when we are able to grasp this love, then loving him back and living for him can no longer be a struggle.
May the Holy Spirit help and teach us to grow in the knowledge of the father’s love every day, amen.
See you soon.
