Are You persuaded?

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 8:38-39

The word persude according to means: “to induce to believe by appealing to reason or understanding; convince.”

God has declared and demonstrated in His Word that He loves us.  If we simplify the discussion in the passage above (Romans 8:38-39) to all that is created, and the One Who created it….It’s easy to see the point. Nothing in all of creation can separate you from the love of The One Who created you.  So God has declared He loves us and that nothing can separate us from that love.

But what about His demonstration of this love? The place where God demonstrated His love for us is the Cross! Jesus said in Mark 10:45 that He came to this earth to serve and not to be served and to give His live as a ransom. John tells us “By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.” So God demonstrated His love for us by sending His son to die on the Cross for our sins…

But maybe you are not persuaded.  Maybe you are listening to how you feel instead of what God has declared and demonstrated. The only thing that can separate you and I from God’s love is unbelief!  

So believe what God has declared and demonstrated to you….He loves you!
