Blessings honour and power to the Name of our God and for bringing us to see another day. Thank You Lord for the fresh breath of air we take. O, my brothers and sisters so many long to see this day but they have been called from works unto reward. We are still on the land of the living to offer up our praise and thanks to Almighty God. This morning I just want to say Thank You Lord for allowing me to see this day. Let us get into the message where we left off yesterday.
The other measure of God’s love is seen in its object. A good brother told me, that love is more remarkable and wonderful when there is a very great distance between the lover and the beloved. The distance between the infinite God and our finite selves is limitless. Archbishop Weir wrote that in order to get a little glimpse of what it meant to Christ to die for man, just imagine what it would mean to you to become a slug or a snail in order to save those creatures! And yet the distance between you and a snail is finite; you are both creatures. The distance between God and you is infinite! No wonder Paul exclaims, “Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift”! (2 Corinthians 9:15)
The incredible love of God in dealing with our sins becomes the basis, then, for clinging to the promise of His love. Romans 8:31 to 34 echoes this very thought—”If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, will he not also give us all things with him? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies; who is to condemn? Is it Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us?” This I say unto you my brothers and sisters in The Mystical Order hold on to God’s unchanging hand. There is no one out there that can lay a charge against you if you walk right and according to His gracious word. There is none to lay a stumbling block or a rock of offence to those that are called by His Name. No one I say can bring you down with their lies and innuendos. Walk right and stay in the precepts of the word of God. I assure you that just like Balaam who faced the angel and the donkey had to talk to him, you are as precious in the sight of God. So be true to yourself and moreso to Almighty God.
Does sin separate us from God? Not in the light of God’s willingness to forgive. By giving up His own Son for us, God showed that He would do anything to keep us from falling. Our forgiven sins keep reminding us of how much God loves us. If you believe this lift your hands and praise the Lord and thank Him for His Son Jesus Christ. Our sins cannot separate us from God if God does not condemn us. He is our judge, but if He is for us, if He justifies us, who can condemn us? The love of God is so clearly certain in the cross that no matter what happens, all reason to doubt is removed. Instead of separating us from God’s love, our forgiven sins are actually a sign of God’s love to us. They remind us that God did not spare His own Son and will do anything possible to keep us from falling. Remember that we are sons and daughters washed in His blood and te same blood is there for our protection. This morning if you sin as a believer we have an advocate we can talk to and He will go before the Father on our behalf. This is more reason for you to love Him.
