Nothing will ever be able to separate us from His love from that point forward (Romans 8:35-39). Additionally, He further seals us as His property by placing the Holy Spirit within us as His marker of ownership (2 Corinthians 1:22). From that point onward, there will never be a day, never a moment of a day, in which we are not acceptable before God, thanks to the love of Jesus. Christian author Jerry Bridges wrote so eloquently about God’s love in his 1988 book Trusting God: “God's unfailing love for us is an objective fact affirmed over and over in the Scriptures. It is true whether we believe it or not. Our doubts do not destroy God's love, nor does our faith create it. It originates in the very nature of God, who is love, and it flows to us through our union with His beloved Son.” Moreover, God's love is infinitely personal. As Saint Augustine wrote, “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”
That said, there can be days or phases in our life in which we are not fully submitted to Him and not walking in the center of His will, but if we have broken fellowship with Him and are walking a path of sin, He will continually pursue us just like Francis Thompson’s (1859-1907) “Hound of Heaven” until we are back in right fellowship with Him. This loving, persistent, and tireless pursuit by God of any of His lost sheep is an unshakeable, unassailable truth from scripture and is illustrated by Jesus in the parable of the lost sheep (Luke 15:3-7). It is hard for us to comprehend just how much He loves us because His God-sized love is too big for us to grasp in our limited human understanding, and we have nothing to compare it to in our earthly existence, yet it is, nonetheless, true and has been proven not just in the cross, but in so many countless individual situations in the lives of His children over the vast sweep of the centuries. God’s love is the greatest story of the ages and should be the greatest story of our individual lives.
I pray that you would experience God’s tremendous and profound love for you in every part of your life.
