<113> Thesis:   Those who are in Christ are as secure as they can possibly be in terms of their eventual experience of the benefits of The Love of The God. Introduction:   It is of the utmost importance, to those of us who believe, that we understand the commitments that God has made to us in terms of His Love. There is the issue of how things will eventually work out, and there is the issue of how things are currently working out. Paul has tied the issue of how things are currently working out to this issue of our faith in the fact of God's love for us and the sense of security that brings to us. However, the practical issue of being secure is the actual experience of the chief benefit of that Love: the Joy of the Life. The problem is that there is no believer of record whose own testimony would be that of an experience through life in this world of uninterrupted Joy. Thus, we need to look into Paul's declaration with some care to see what it is that he is actually attempting to communicate.
