THE LOVE OF GOD IN CHRIST - By Pastor Floyd Baker

 By Pastor Floyd Baker

Scripture Reading: Romans 8:39

In our pre-marital counseling we spend a great deal of time in Ephesians chapter five looking at the responsibility of the wife and the husband to each other in the marriage. One of the most difficult instructions we find is when the wife is told “submit yourself unto your own husband, as unto the Lord.” What we point out to the husband to be, is that the wife “needs” the security of his love. That is why we see that the husband is “to love his wife as Christ loved the church, and gave himself for it.” There is security in love!

What blessed security the child of God has in God’s love. This is why Paul could write, “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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the LOVE OF GOD which is IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD” (Romans 8:38, 39). How needful it is for us to realize that God has our welfare in mind in all that He does and allows in our lives. This is the reality of Romans 8:28.

We have the confidence that in death, absent from the body is at home with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8). But what about life, when things appear to go wrong? Yes, Paul declares that not even life with all of its problems and difficulties will remove us out of God’s love. This love as we note is “in Christ Jesus,” and we are in Him for time and eternity. How wonderful for us to rest in that love, and to enjoy it each day. May we too be “persuaded” of the wonderful love of God.

Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.
-Oswald Chambers.

 Compassion is difficult to give away because it keeps coming back.

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
