Can anything separate us from the love of Christ?
Roman 8:35 CEV
The life of a believer is not always perfect. We face many of the same kinds of problems today that believers have endured throughout history such as hardship, trials, hunger, illness, suffering, heart break, abandonment, danger, and even death. Difficult times could cause you to fear that Christ has abandoned you. Yet His death on the cross is proof of His unconditional love for each one of us.
Romans 8: 38 – 39 gives us one of the most comforting promises in all of Scripture:
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons,
neither the present nor the future,
nor any powers,
neither height nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.” (NIV)
Absolutely Nothing can stop Christ’s constant presence with us, and ~ nothing ~ in all of creation can separate us from His never-ending, unchanging, limitless, unfathomable, and eternal love for us. If we believe these overwhelming assurances, we will never fear, no matter what circumstances we face.
