Romans 8:35-36 (NLT) Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?
Phillip: pastor, are you sure God still loves me? Because all these situations I have been facing for the past year does not prove to me that God still loves me.
PST John: Yes, I know God still loves you. God’s love for you is eternal, it does not change.
Phillip: but what if I may have done something really bad that has made God withdraw His love for me?
PST John: when you were still dead in your sins and didn’t care about God, didn’t God love you then? What makes you think He will stop loving you now that you care about Him?
God’s love for us is eternal and unending- it endures forever (see Psa 100:5). If we are not enjoying the love and grace of God as we should, the problem is not with God but with us.
Think of the sun that shines every day without fail. If you hide from the light of the sun, does it mean the sun did not shine? That is how God’s love and grace is. People who ‘lose it’ are the ones who rejected it, not that Christ rejected them.
Go into today asking the Lord to help you always be properly positioned to experience the undeniable manifestation of His love and grace. Know that no matter what you are going through, God’s love for you has not changed.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
