The old year is behind us now, and we are standing on an elevated plane, and we try to peer into the new. There is a certain sense of trepidation as we look at the path before us. Where will the road lead us, and what will the future bring? Already we may spot new mountains rising on the horizon, and if we listen carefully, we may already hear the rushing waters of foaming streams that we will have to cross. Doubtless, there will be shadow-filled valleys, although, for the moment, most of the road is still obscured by the misty clouds of the unknown. But time will not stop, and we are about to begin our descent into the uncharted future. And this is where we, as children of the King have an unparalleled advantage over the unbelieving world. We have an all-sufficient answer. Nothing, absolutely nothing, can separate us from the love of God. No things present, nor things to come. No power on earth can detach usContinue reading »

Again I hoped for a change for the better. But it got worse. Then the doctor came. He shook his head and for awhile said nothing. I looked at him from my sweaty bed with anticipation. I hope he doesn’t send me toContinue reading »

An everlasting love. An all consuming love. A burning passion. A love that never dies. What has God promised us? He will never leave nor forsake you, for He has told you in His Word. In Deuteronomy 31:6 6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” And Romans 13:5 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” And Romans 8: 38-39 that took my breath upon my first reading of it: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”   Perhaps you are not a believer in eternal love because you have been hurt by people,Continue reading »
