His Love for You: God Loves Us by Making Us Inseparable!
[Nothing] shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39
Imprinting happens when some birds or mammals are born and they bond with the first thing they see. Most notably, baby ducklings hatched from an incubator are known to imprint on the humans who raise them, making them inseparable.
A kind of imprinting is described by Jesus in John 10:27-28: “My sheep hear My voice … and they follow Me.… And they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.” If we have been born again, we will follow Christ. And nothing shall ever separate us from the love of God which is in Christ. God is “stuck with us” for eternity! Paul details a long list of forces that might seek to break the bond between Him and us (Romans 8:35-39). And he concludes the list by saying that nothing can separate us from God’s love. His love not only saves us, but keeps us secure forever.
On this last weekend in the “month of love,” give God thanks that you are secure in His love. And look for ways to make others secure in your love for them!
None walk so evenly with God, as they who are assured of the love of God.
