Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
For so many centuries, Christians were able to preserve the word of God through thousands of manuscript evidence. Despite Roman persecutions and fallacies that circulated, we Christians can still easily gain access to KJV Bible today. All thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ and His love which is manifested in His followers to grow us Christians.
Jesus’ love for us is invincible and it is so incredibly powerful!
It is important to bear in mind that any pain or suffering that we go through in this lifetime will not separate us from God’s love.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Even though we have sinned so much in life and taken His love for granted, God still loved us enough to send His only begotten Son to die for us at the cavalry. If one is not saved by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, all that is upon one is God’s hatred and His wrath.
One thing for us to differentiate is that to the believers, Jesus ‘loves’ us, His ‘love’ for us is manifested at the cross of calvary. When we choose to believe He is our savior, we are already justified by His blood. Nonetheless, this is not applicable to the lost souls who rejected that belief, anything outside of that manifestation is only left with God’s wrath and an eternal lake of fire.
How can we not love and come to believe in the God who loves us so much that is willing to die for us despite all our wretchedness and wickedness? If He could still love us enough back then at the cavalry when people chose to stone, persecute and crucify Him on the cross; how can His love for us be any weaker at this present moment? Think about it.
Hebrews 12:10-11 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
Notice that when certain individuals punish their children, they do it for pleasure. But when our Heavenly Father punishes us, He does it to make us better, for chastisement. The punishment itself may be unpleasurable, but it takes away the real pain and suffering from our sin. We need to know that every sin surely comes with a consequence.
When we face trials and afflictions in life or fall into Satan’s plan of destruction, we need to hold on firmly to Jesus’ love, just like the martyrs who died for Jesus Christ. Despite the dreadful persecution, the only thing that kept them strong was their love and faith in Lord Jesus Christ.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
We do not need to be defeated or get discouraged by the world, knowing that by the end of the day, we have the last laugh and the final victory through Jesus Christ. His love upon us will always pull us through and overcome them.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
The love of God is eternal inheritance, just remind ourselves that every second of suffering that we endure for God will fill up our bank account in Heaven.
Some Christians may question their salvation, thinking even though God has forgiven their sins in the past, but if they commit a heavy crime or sin at present or in the future. However, we need to know that our mishaps will never be tremendous enough to overthrow God’s ‘I am that I am’.
Our phases in life may be progressive, but God’s love towards us will never change. That is His promise to us. As believers, we will not lose our salvation, once we are saved, we will always be saved.
No matter what path we choose in life, His love is still strong and will cling on to us. Sometimes we may think that when things do not go our way, or according to our desired plans, we may feel resentful but we need to trust and know that our God is creative, perfect and His plan for us is infallible. It is better to walk according to His will, and not our will.
As Proverbs 3:5 says, if God does not love us, He will completely let us choose our own path and be blinded by our own foolish and unwise decisions.
No one on earth can fill the void of our lives like God. He replaces the void with His grace in our trials, His communion with us in prayer and bible during loneliness and never-ending presence whenever we go.
Revelation 2:4-5 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
We need to constantly remember how God helps us to get glory and fruits despite all the trials that discourage us and sometimes even bring us to our knees. Or when we make mistakes or sin in life, God will turn all those bad things we did for the greater good and into important life lessons.
