Not Even Our Trials Can Separate Us From God’s Love

The trials and tribulations we endure are not tokens of His displeasure. They are all tempered by His loving heart. A sense of His love hovering over us in the midst of our distresses is the most blessed of all balms and will enable us not only to endure them, but to enjoy them. Here all the great forces of the universe are arrayed, and none of them, no, nor all of them together, can come between us and the unconquerable love of our God as displayed in Christ Jesus.

Death will be swallowed up by life. Life may lead us far from Him, but not beyond the reach of His love. The present perplexes us, the future fills us with fear, but only when we lose the sense of His love. Powers, celestial or terrestrial, are subject to His sway. Nothing above or beneath, nothing at all has the power to break the bond that binds the humblest and most unworthy saint to the throbbing breast of our great and glorious God. This is more than salvation from sin!

This is reconciliation!

Is God Worse than an Infidel?

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel (I Timothy 5:8).

How could we arrive at the point of thinking that God would not accept responsibility for all His children that were created by Him in His own image and likeness? The genealogy of Luke 3 ends in :38 saying,

the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

If God has not denied that Adam, the originator of sin to the human race, is His “son,” how is it possible that He would deny the sonship of Adam’s descendants who are victims of the sin nature inherited from him? As Father God has said,

Behold, all souls are Mine … (Ezekiel 18:4).
