Beloved, nothing can separate us from the love of God. Nothing can separate us from the life of God by which we are joined to God.
Our relationship is kept by the Father himself. If he is the one keeping us, then he is never leaving us. Not only that, he is not letting us go and no one can take us out of his grip.
KJV John 10:28-29
…and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
The Son has one job now; he lives for us. Like E.W. Kenyon would say, the son lives for us as a wife lives for his husband. The Son is alive for us. He is alive as a witness that all our sins have been taken care of and our relationship with God is sure and cannot be destroyed. He is alive as our security. Oh! Our salvation is to end because he lives to keep us saved.
KJV Hebrews 7:25
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Because he lives forever, our salvation is secured. Let this settle in your heart: you don’t need a do-over anytime you sin. Your relationship with God doesn’t end anytime you do wrong. You don’t have to renew your relationship with God anytime you sin as though it was a temporary subscription. Your relationship with God is eternal. Nothing can destroy it.
Our sins have been take care of. They have all been forgiven. We stand before the Father justified. We are in an unbroken fellowship with him. A fellowship enacted by blood, a fellowship initiated by life, that’s what we have in Christ.
When you do something wrong, simply acknowledge the forgiveness you have in Christ. Know that you are forgiven and your wrong actions are not remembered anymore.
KJV 1 John 2:1-2
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
KJV Hebrews 8:12
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, And their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Our sins are forgiven and forgotten. Acknowledge this anytime you feel a strain in your relationship with God. Know that the feeling of separation is just a feeling and not the reality. The word is our reality.
Does this mean we can sin all we want? No, understand that because our relationship is enacted by his life, Christ lives through us. Doing good works, therefore, should not should be difficult for a Christian when we realize that it is Christ living through us. Our old life is dead and we have a new life in Christ Jesus….
