Will he withdraw His love?
LOVE OF CHRIST
Rom 8:35-39 (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 thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that 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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord).
The “love of Christ” here means His love for believers, not their love for Him).
But if Christ’s love for believers should fall because of their sin, what then?
His love never will fail.
It is everlasting (Jer 31:3 The Lord appeared me …, saying “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;)
It began before hey came into existence on the earth and will go on as long as they live in it and forever after.
He knew in advance all their sinfulness and all their sin, and set His love on them anyway.
Christ’s love “surpasses knowledge” (Eph 3:19 and to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God)
It will overcome all obstacles and bring all
It will overcome all obstacles and bring all His people safely into His loving presence at last (Song of songs 8: 6,7 Set me seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm. For love strong as death; jealousy is severe as the grave; its coals are of fire, with a very fierce flame).
Why does Paul here speak of troubles and dangers?
Because they are the common lot of God’s people (John 16:33 In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world). Because Satan tries to use them to get the victory over believers; because they may sometimes cause believers to wonder if Christ still loves them; and because they may even become an into unbelief.
Will he with draw His love?
He will bring them all safely through all possible experiences of life.
