God’s Love Shown
The reason our hope can never be taken from us is that we are held in God's love. We know this love by the Holy Spirit pouring it into our hearts; not little drops but a flood. It is a subjective experience but is linked to the objective demonstration of God's love at the cross. If we doubt that God could love someone like us, here is the assurance: Christ died for weak, ungodly sinners. He will not refuse us. He came for people like us.
