“THE LOVE OF GOD” [Rom 8:31-39]
FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 2019

“We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” vs37-39

Here is the key. We are loved by God through Jesus Christ. All men don’t have this love, but we do, and it has eternal privileges. Nothing shall separate us from it.

First, it doesn’t matter who is against us. “What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us [vs31]?” If we are reconciled, chosen, and predestined, then let men and demons do their worst. Let sickness come or whatever else God decides. He loves us! Often, in marriage or a great romantic relationship, nothing bothers two people in love, so long as they have each other. Love is stronger than death. In reality, God’s love is the GREATEST tonic ever.

He didn’t spare His Son! “He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things [vs32]?” That is the proof of His love. What more evidence do we need?

Secondly, we are justified, meaning we are clear in His sight and forgiven. “Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies [vs33].” Our sins have been charged to Christ - the horribleness of them and their constancy - and they have not been charged to us - no matter how drastic they are or how fresh [Rom 4:8]! We have reconciliation through God punishing Christ; we are accepted.

This is a mystery, but right now, He’s at God’s right hand mediating blessings for us, guaranteeing that we get what He died to give. “Who is there to condemn us? For Christ Jesus, who died, and more than that was raised to life, is at the right hand of God—and He is interceding for us [vs34].” We always have Someone at the right hand of God, saying, “Bless them.” The High Priestly Prayer of John 17 illustrates this continual intercession - that we’d be one, kept, see His love, and be where He is, etc.

Thirdly, nothing shall separate us from His love, not sickness, death, or anything men fear and avoid: They are powerless to break His love. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword [vs35]?” They hinder our peace and take away our pleasure [vs18-22]: We lose loved ones and endure so much pain, but He loves us as much now as ever. Everything is working for good [vs28]. The same love that sent the Son to die and foreknew us glorified is the same love that STICKS with us in every storm, even sending the wind and the rain. He has not forgotten us, and He will not withhold His promised comfort [vs6]. The Spirit is given to assure us of His love, so that we endure with joy [Rom 5:3-5]

We go through many sufferings. Don’t let anyone tell you differently, and do not think differently [vs36-37]. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” Many are thrown off because they expect a life of ease, instead of the pain and persecution He’s promised [Mark 10:30]. Your children still may die. Your business may go under. You health may get worse! None of these things are promised as our inheritance, but God’s love is - the knowledge that heaven is coming, and God is with us now.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing can separate us from His love, so in the hardest situation we can repose, think on this, and lean on it: His love comforts. “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us [vs37].” It is not merely love that will meet us in heaven, but it is love that gives peace and assurance now. Vs38

Finally, this love is in Christ Jesus our Lord; it is not in ourselves, our performances, or our deserving. It is not in us, so it cannot be lost by us: It is for all who believe. “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
