Our Inseparable Relationship - Romans 8

Far too many relationships in today's world are uncertain. Disunity is found in marriages, churches, and international alliances. Yet there's one relationship that is sure and permanent.


The Lord designed people for intimate fellowship with Him. His love toward each of us is evident throughout the Bible. In fact, there is nothing tangible, intangible, past, present, or future that can separate believers from the Father's love. John 10:14 draws a comparison between Jesus and a good shepherd—a man whose ultimate task is providing for and protecting the flock. Christ's character is one of passionate care for His people. I John 4:16 clearly states, "God is love." If we believe the Bible, then we cannot deny this fact about His nature.


We also see evidence of divine love through the Lord's gifts and actions. For example, He created us in His image (Genesis 1:26). He sent His only Son to die in our place, and He forgives us of our sin debt (I Corinthians 15:3). John 15:15 tells us that Christ calls us His friends—and what's more, when we trust in Jesus, God adopts us and considers us His children (Romans 8:15). He even blesses us with an Intercessor and Helper - the Holy Spirit (John 14:26). The Word is clear: God loves us passionately.


The affection we experience in our families is only a glimpse of the great compassion and care that God has for you. Think about the people you treasure most. Imagine what you would be willing to do if they experienced a need. How much more will our heavenly Father be devoted to you!



Current Sermon Series
      The very basic meaning of sanctification is "the state of proper functioning." To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer. As believers, we are to be have sanctified lives dedicated to living our lives for the sole purpose of worshiping and praising God. Join us as we study this series on how to live a sanctified life called: The Pattern of Sanctification.


Last Week:
      We delved into more detail concerning the marks of authentic Christianity: repentance, righteousness, submission, obedience, and love. We also talked about types of faith that doesn't save.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      We will continue into our series on The Pattern of Sanctification by looking at the next step: Obedience.
