FATHER’S Love Plan Part 9

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 8:

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written:

​​“For Your sake we are killed all day long;

​​We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39 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.

Love promotes all aspects of life and restoration.  As Paul said in the above passage, nothing shall be able to separate us from FATHER’S Love.  When we pursue Love, in essence we are pursuing life, health, blessing, relationships, peace, and all other aspects of the Kingdom.  Can there be a greater priority than pursuing the revelation of Love?

There is nothing and no one can separate us from the Love of Christ.  This Love is greater than the sum of all men’s sins and lawlessness since the beginning of the world.  Even the most lawless men are not exempt from this Love thus they will ultimately bow their knees and confess with their tongues “Jesus is Lord”.

Paul (who was Saul) had been the number one enemy of the believers and had officiated Stephen’s stoning and death but he received grace and mercy from Our Heavenly Father and was acquitted of all of his crimes against believers.  He became a new creation and his mind was transformed which enabled him to state in Acts chapter 20;

26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men.

Love totally exonerated him of all wrongdoing and be assured that your past sins and lawless acts have been wiped clean from your slate as well so quit beating yourself up because of your past.

When Jesus was confronted with the situation of a woman caught in adultery, how did He respond?  In John chapter 8 Jesus dealt with the situation by Love:

7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up[fn] and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,[fn] went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours?[fn] Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Love does not condemn or criticize but seeks to restore and expose men to the light and remove darkness from their midst.  The problems we face on a daily basis are no match for the light expressed through FATHER’S Love for us.  Our past is no match when the radiant light of FATHER’S Love has overtaken the darkness.  Let our gratitude be expressed daily for this gift of Love given to all of mankind.  What a time to be alive!
