Our Inseparable Relationship – Romans 8:31-39

Post  Waqar Daniel on Tue 17 Jul 2007, 11:23 pm

God is love. His nature requires Him to care for Creation unconditionally. This means no matter what a person does, even if he rejects God, the Lord won’t stop loving him. After hearing that, many people may think of a dozen reasons why they’re an exception. But Dr. Stanley insists that God loves each of us. The only thing preventing us from experiencing that love is our response. We can either believe our feelings or the truth of Scripture.

In Romans 8:31, Paul points out that God is on the side of the believer. He gave up His Son to death so we could be forgiven and enter into a relationship with the Almighty. Jesus’ sacrifice alone is proof of God’s love. But there are many additional expressions of His care.
The Lord has a purpose and plan for everyone’s life. Romans 8:28 tells us He works every situation, good or bad, to our benefit. He’s a loving Father who’s interested and actively involved in our daily lives.

Some people read and intellectually believe every word of the Bible. But they still feel unloved because they judge themselves unworthy. Their doubt acts like a dam, keeping the flow of God’s care from their hearts. The barrier stays as long as the person believes he or she must deserve God’s love.

No sinner deserves pure love. God knows that. Yet, He freely gives His love anyway. The choice of whether or not to accept it is up to us.

Dr. Charles Stanley
