A journey through the gold mine of Romans 8 Pt 12. Romans 8. 35-39. The security of God's love for His people in the Lord Jesus. (2 Corinthians 11:22-28, Romans 8:35-39)Evan Richards, April 9, 2017
Part of the Romans series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
1. God's infinite love for His people is not diminished or terminated by our failures, shortcoming or sins.
2. God's infinite love for His people is not threatened or undermined by all sorts of adversity, including death.
3. God's infinite love for His people is supremely demonstrated in Christ Jesus our Lord, who gave himself for us on the cross.
4. God's infinite love for us will be ultimate in heaven, but we should experience it now as the foundation for victory as we face trials for his sake.

2 Corinthians 11:22-28
22Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I. 23Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. 24Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. 25Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; 26In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 27In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 28Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. (KJV)
35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor 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. (KJV)
