A Barrier to God's Love

Christ experienced a barrier to His love when His people rejected Him.
He cried in Matthew 23: 37, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!"

Our sin is a barrier to God's love. 
Isaiah 59:2 wrote, "But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear."

Jesus took care of the barrier by His sacrificial death on the cross and His resurrection.
Romans 8:11 said, "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you."

There is now no barrier between God and those who would believe in Him.
Now is the time to experience God's love and His goodness.
Thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Mediator between God and men (1 Timothy 2:5).
