Teacher: John Schoenheit
Christians are God’s children and He loves us with an undying love. This simple truth is one of the most profound in the Bible, yet it is amazing how often we forget it. Like all children, we disobey and we make mistakes – sometimes on purpose, sometimes just because of our fallen human condition. Often we feel badly about our sins and mistakes and sometimes we get so caught up in our feelings of failure or shame that we forget God loves us. Worse, we can begin to believe that He does not love us, that He is angry with us, or marshaling His spiritual forces against us.
In this teaching, John Schoenheit focuses on what the Bible says about God’s love for us, and points out that God had the choice to walk away from us, but because of His great love for us decided instead to send His Son to die in our place. The teaching concludes in Romans 8, where Paul says he is persuaded that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
