Here is an excerpt from the June 2011 issue of my newsletter. Feel free to send me an email if you want to be added to the mailing list to receive it monthly.

This study is in three (3) parts and this is an excerpt from part 1.

It is a fact that God loves all of mankind including non-believers and sinners. The scripture says God loved the ‘world’ or the KOSMOS. This refers to the earth and its inhabitants but encompasses the universe as well.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

It also says God gave us His only begotten Son Jesus the Christ and He chose to die for us all. Can you imagine giving up your only totally innocent child to die for the vilest, wickedest and most undeserving people that ever existed? I can’t! In fact I know I would not be able to do that. But God’s love for us was and is so unconditional that He did in fact do that.

Christ gave up Heaven, took on flesh and blood or bones, was crucified, died and was buried in a tomb but did not stay dead. God raised Him from the dead. Christ’s resurrection means that all people have the opportunity to be raised from the dead as well. This was God’s plan for mankind so that ALL may be reconnected to HIM. Christ was the first of many.

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.” (1 Corinthians 15:20-21)

All died because of Adam. All have the opportunity to live through Christ. In Paul’s epistle to the Romans we are told that believers are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. There is nothing that is able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Not death nor life, not angels, principalities nor powers, not things present nor things to come, not height nor depth nor any other created thing.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that 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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39)

God’s Love for us is permanent. Believers cannot be separated from God’s love by these things listed above. But can we be separated from God? God loves people and hates sin. Iniquity or depraved action (sin) separates people from God. Sin causes God to hide His face from people and to not hear them.

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” (Isaiah 59:2)

This means that where sin exists, God hides His face. It does not mean that He withdraws His love. He loves unconditionally and cannot withdraw His love, not even from the separated. That is why he loves the sinner; God cannot stop loving people because He IS LOVE.

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4:16)
