In God’s Story, I’ve been mulling over this extraordinary Truth: it says nothing can separate us from the love He expresses to us in Jesus.
I think it’s time for the people of God to start living like it.
Each day is filled with myriad temptations to subvert this Truth, to affirm that so many things can separate us from His love.
- The sins of the past
- Fears about the future
- Stress and anxiety in the present
- All my shortcomings
- All my failures
But His word to us is singular and constant.
Compared to His love, these are nothing.
Persecution or famine, danger or nakedness or sword? Nothing.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 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.
