God’s Everlasting Love


Romans 8:31-39
 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?   He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?   Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.   Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes 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 Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who 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 created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Are you a USER?

I thank God daily for my freedom to LIVE!! JESUS died on the cross for my SINS and today I am FORGIVEN. Grateful for His GRACE and MERCY.
If this does not fuel the soul...you are dead inside.

I've learned that we can walk around and enjoy the freedom that has been handed down, but we do not embrace it as the LOVE that God gave. We exist in this blessing of having a life and not fully living it.

When we fall into that pit of trouble .. the first thing we say is "Oh God!" Yes, we can be users when we want to be. Why call his name when you don't even praise Him daily. Oh yes, because you know He will forgive, might even help you  out once again.

For all users:

Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God." Deut 8:19,20

Re-think your actions and this time when you ask God to forgive you, be committed to keeping your promise because He will keep his.
