There is so much power coming through these words and this teaching. You can hear Paul’s inspiration and determination pouring out. He is set on teaching the TRUTH about the Gospel message – that God’s definition of love is so much broader and so much deeper and so much more powerful than ours that is supersedes our feelings, supersedes the limited vision that we have of our lives, and supersedes even the obstacles, the “calamities, trouble, and danger,” as Paul says, that come at us as a result of this corrupted world – or Satan’s intentional efforts. In this life we will know suffering and betrayal and we will experience violence and disease, but praise God He gives us a bigger picture of creation in which we see ourselves living not only in THIS ife but the NEXT. By the grace of God our sin natures have been overcome, we are able to experience fellowship with the Most High God – and death has been defeated. Brothers and sisters, there is nothing more to fear. We win – Satan loses – game over. When our souls are given over to our Lord Jesus Christ, NOTHING, get that? NOTHING can break the bond of love that our creator has for us. He is omnipotent and He will use that attribute to hang on to you even through your most difficult trials and moments of doubt. Life is hard, pain is real – but grace abounds! Amen and Amen!
