God’s Love in Christ
Please read these words of St. Paul from his Letter to the Romans (8:28-39):
We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. For those he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, so that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined he also called; and those he called he also justified; and those he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him? Who will bring a charge against God’s chosen ones? It is God who acquits us. Who will condemn? It is Christ Jesus who died, rather, was raised, who also is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. What will separate us from the love of Christ? Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? As it is written: “For your sake we are being slain all the day; we are looked upon as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
It was cloudy yesterday but we did not get much rain, just a little bit. It will rain today and the farmers will surely be happy as the soil is very dry. I went to Eucharistic Adoration last evening for one hour. It is a joy for me to be with Jesus in the Eucharist.
(Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,)
“My heart is full of love for you, My brother Melvin and for all My brothers and sisters living in the world. I came into the world for you to show you the Father’s love and to teach you how you should live as the children of the Father. You were all separated from the Father because of sin. There was no way you could go to heaven. I had to come to earth as a human being to suffer and die for you to pay the price for your sins. What is sin? Sin is an offense against God and those who live in mortal sin deserve to go to Hell. I came and through My sacrifice on the cross the Father could have mercy on you and if you repent of your sins He will remove them all. So through My sacrifice on the cross, I opened heaven for all those who repent and believe in Me.
It was indeed out of love for each one of you that I went through all that suffering. I was killed but I had not done anything wrong. I had taken upon Myself all your sins. The sentence for sin is death so I died instead of you so you could become the loving children of the Father and My dear brothers and sisters. Come and follow Me every day. Be men and women who forgive all those who sin against them. In this way you follow Me. I call you all to come now and accept Me as your Savior who loves you. I bless you all. ”
