He Loved Us Eternally
… after Paul shows us the working of God’s righteousness, the saturating of His holiness, and the glorifying of His glory, he brings us into the heart of God (8:31-39).
God does so much for us simply because He loves us. He loved us eternally. From eternity in the past, God loved us, and He still loves us today.
His heart is our stay, our security, and His love is our safeguard. Do not have any doubt about your personal salvation. God loves you, and He assures you that He will accomplish everything on your behalf.
Whether You Cooperate Or Not
If you cooperate with Him, He will accomplish this smoothly. If you do not cooperate with Him, He will encounter some difficulties, but eventually He will get through.
Although you may afford Him some hardship, you cannot frustrate Him. That hardship does not mean very much to Him.
Sooner or later, you will say, “Father, I worship You because You love me. You selected me, predestinated me, called me, and justified me. Praise You, Lord, that You have sanctified me and even glorified me. Here I am in glory.”
One day we all shall pray in this way. No longer shall we praise the Lord for things such as cars and houses. Instead, we shall praise Him for the righteousness of God, the holiness of God, the glory of God, and the love of God.
