I was going through the Book of Genesis some days back and when I got to the place where Cain was chastised for killing his brother, Abel, I was reminded of the unfailing love of God.
God loves even when He is meting out punishment. God cared for Cain’s wellbeing even though he had been sentenced to being a vagabond. No one was permitted to do him harm despite the fact that he was being punished by God. God still had his back.
God’s love never fails. Even if you stop loving Him, He loves you still. How reassuring!
This is to say that it is not what you do or don’t do that makes God love you. God always loves you. God loves sinners but He hates the sin that sinners commit.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 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 8:35, 38-39 ASV)
Yes, we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us.
You see His love being described here again?
God’s love makes it possible for us to live meaningful lives.
Never think that God does not love you. No matter what’s going on in your life at the moment (yes, no matter how bad thing are), know for sure that God loves you.
Even if you are being punished for a wrong done, His love is revealed in His discipline.
God’s love is everlasting.
