  1. Thanks for the word study. Question: The word says nothing or no one can separate us from the love of Yahweh. So is it His love or His will that lust is separating us from?

    1. That is an outstanding question. His love for us is unconditional — without regard to our actions or our love for Him. He allows us the choice and if we lust for other gods, then we are separating ourselves from Him, ignoring both His love and His perfect will for our lives. But His love always remains and waits for our return.
