I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We tend to love on the basis of what someone else does for us. Do they please us, serve us, compliment us? Does the person earn our respect and devotion then we will show our love.
Our love tends to be conditional. You do this and I’ll do that. Tit for tat. We serve to be served.
When we look to Jesus we know that He came to “serve” not to be “served.”
That is where we should take our cues from, that kind of love is lasting.
God’s Word says we are to love our enemies and pray for those who spitefully use us.
How many of us can actually do that? Only by God’s grace and power helping us can we even come near to doing this.
When we look to God’s love it serves as a Christian’s model of perfect love.
God’s love is the real deal. His love never forsakes us. God’s love is everlasting.
God sent His only son to die for us.
He gave His son Jesus Christ to be a sacrifice for our sins.
Jesus laid down His life for us. We were not worthy then and now.
We did not earn His love, we did not deserve His love, we have no conditions on which to merit His love.
And yet He gave His love unconditionally.
As believers in Jesus Christ nothing can separate us from God’s love.
Nor thing present or things to come.
Nor ANYTHING ELSE in all creation.
Nothing dear reader, nothing can seprarate us from the love of God.
Not man’s rejection of us.
Not the death of our loved ones.
Not powers coming against us from the enemy camp.
Not rulers of this present age, governments with all their crooked agendas.
Not circumstances, nor future circumstances.
Our heavenly Father loves us, completely, unconditionally, forevermore.
Cling onto this love.
Hold on for all your worth.
Never forget His love is there even when all else seems gone.
His love is real, authentic, unconditional, and not one thing on this earth can separate us from it.
I will try hard to do the same.
No matter what.
Does the future scare you?
The direction of our society’s morals in general scare you?
Do evil rulers scare you with their propaganda?
Does anything frighten you or make you sad?
Cling to the promises of God in Romans 8:38-39.
God’s love brings us together in unity, it never separates us from Him.
That is a love worth clinging onto.
Through thick and thin.
Let us never forget His love.
We can never be separated from His love.
