Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. – Romans 8:37
Beloved friends, there is no reason why He should cast us off. Can you adduce any reason why He should cast you away? Is it your poverty, your nakedness, your peril, the danger of your life? In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that hath loved us. Do you say it is your sins? Then I answer sin can never be a cause why God should cast away His people, for they were full of sin when He at first embraced their persons, and espoused their cause. That would have been a cause why He never should have loved them, but having loved them when they were dead in trespasses and sins, their sin can never be a reason for leaving them. Besides, the Apostle says, “I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,”-and sin is one of the things present, and I fear it is one of the 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.” O child of God, there is no fear of your misusing this precious truth. The base-born professor of godliness may say, “I will sin, for God will not cast me away,” but you will not, ye heirs of heaven; rather you will bind this about your heart, and say “Now will I love Him who having loved His own, loves them even unto the end.” Glory be to God!
If there be any truth taught us in Scripture, it is that the children of God cannot perish. If this Book teaches anything whatever it teaches in a hundred places that “The righteous shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall wax stronger and stronger.” “The mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed, but the covenant of His love cannot depart from us saith the Lord that hath mercy upon us.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon
