God Is Love, Part XVIII
Love never fails. I Corinthians 13:8
For the believer, the wrath of God has been satisfied by the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. As the scripture states in the gospel of John: Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
Hell was prepared by God for the devil and his angels and was never intended for man to be judged in eternal damnation and torment for his sins because Jesus shed His blood that mankind could escape the righteous anger of God. When one repents and asks for forgiveness his sins are washed away and the love of God is poured out upon him and there is no longer any condemnation or judgment. The born again believer is then adopted into the family of God.
Once a person becomes a new creation in Christ there is nothing that can separate him from the love of Christ. What can separate you from your children, can they do anything to stop you from loving them? They may disappoint you but they can never escape a parent's love. So it is with God, you may fail, fall or totally miss the mark as we have all done but that will never separate you from the love your heavenly Father has for you!
Yet in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who 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 created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
