Step 10: Separate Yourself from the Love of Christ

Reagan, David

At the very moment any person accepts Christ as Saviour, another wondrous blessing takes place. They are placed within the center of Christ’s love. The love of Christ, which is beyond human comprehension, becomes your strong refuge.

Read here in Ephesians 3:19:

And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

To know Christ is to know a love which is unknowable. This is one of the miracles of salvation.

This love into which you are placed is not only beyond human comprehension, but it is also the greatest power in the universe.

Romans 8:35-39 states:

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 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.

Notice that one by one those things which might separate you from the love of Christ are eliminated. And then, lastly, all other possibilities are at once denied by the phrase, “nor any other creature.” To be in the love of Christ is to be eternally safe from all the dangers which your soul might encounter.

In fact, you cannot become lost by denying Christ’s love. When you give yourself to the love of Christ, He takes you into His bosom of love. This love is so powerful as to deny any other thing to come between His love and the Christian. Yet, to lose your salvation, you must somewhere find the strength to separate yourself from this great love.
