Nothing Can Separate Us from the Love of Christ
Saturday, December 07, 2013
So many times in life we feel alone, unloved, betrayed or even neglected. What a comfort to know that our Heavenly Father loves us so much. Unlike people, God will never leave us or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6). Our God is a mother to the motherless & a father to the fatherless. God loved you so much He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). He loved us so much that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8)
Each time I read these scriptures my heart is filled with joy at how much our Savior loves us!
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am sure 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."
