The Gospel of Grace is an invitation to read God's love letters and be amazed at how much and how long you have never been hated.

It's an invitation to dine with the Father and behold the powerlessness of sin to separate you from His eternal love.

How incomprehensible the love of God is! No "but's" or "if's" in His love. Just pure unconditional love, beyond anything the mind can ever think of.

Paul beholding how magnificent the love and grace of God is towards us, wrote in Romand 8:31-39 KJV:

31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 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.

Now read the ending part again, beginning from verse 38.

He said he is persuaded. That means he is totally convinced, doubly sure, fully certain that nothing can ever separate us from that love.

That means he has checked it from all angles and found nothing that is capable enough to break the bond of oneness we have with the Father.

What are you saying Man of God? Do you mean nothing can ever separate us from the Father, including sin?

Yes, that's exactly what the scripture is saying in Romans 8:38-39.

You see, sin was once the major barrier between us and God. It separated us from Him.

It prevented us from boldly coming into His embrace, calling upon His name for help, and doomed us to hell.

But all of that changed the very moment that Jesus came.

John the Baptizer, beholding Jesus for the first time in Jordan prophetically said, "behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the whole world."

This was the mission of Jesus on earth. And having accomplished that, He became the mediator (standing) between us and God, to make an eternal intercession for us by His blood which He shed on the mercy seat, the very throne of Grace.

So now, we can freely honour that invitation to come into the Father's chambers, before the throne of Grace, and obtain mercy in our weakest moments.

Now we can sit eternally where the Father has always wanted us – besides Him, and get mesmerized by His undiluted and eternal love.

As we keep feeding our minds on these, our character unconsciously begins to align with the character of Christ, as His Spirit starts bearing fruits of righteousness within us and outside of us.

We can then extend the same kind of God's love and grace to those around us, making them see that in Christ, everyone is accepted and has a chance to be a purely New Creature - with their old lives totally gone!
