Msg #1923 Christ's Love Will Stand, Will You?

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

Christians should be as separated as the Israelite, the Levite, the Aaronic priest, the Temple, and even the OT prophet, but it is comforting that tribulation, distress, and persecution cannot separate us from the love of Christ. A believer will face this trio in their Christian walk. They are listed in Romans 8:35 because they have a mind toward separation. They can cause a believer to fall, even fall away, but they are pointed out here because any failings they cause are not on the part of Christ's love. Famine, nakedness, and peril are listed as well, and the sword, listed last, is likely wielded by a nation not by a neighbor. On a physical plain all seven of these might be encountered by a believer; the first three are promised.

A list of ten, more intense, more spiritual things is pending so pause before verse 38 and be sure your faith will not falter when these seven things assail our life. They cannot cause the love of Christ to falter, but according to Matthew 13 stony-soil and thorny-soil will succumb to such an onslaught.

God lists the seven physical things because they can impact the weak-kneed believer. Be assured of Christ's love when you encounter them and purpose a forehand that they will not cause you to fall, fail, or quit. Recall the Psalmist's herald, “ I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread” (Psalm 37:25). The Apostle Peter said, add things to your faith ... “ for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall” (2Peter 1:5-11). The Apostle Paul, “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand...” (Eph 6). Above all, stand.
