“Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?” (Romans 8:35 HCSB)
If we are Christians, is there any reason for us to live in fear? Is there anything that can separate us from the love of Christ? Is there anyone who can separate us from the love of Christ? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!
Here’s the reason why (read the entire passage):
“As it is written: Because of You we are being put to death all day long; we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than victorious through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord! (Romans 8:36-39).”
As Christians, this passage should strengthen us, empower us, encourage us, and eradicate all fear from within us! So then,
- how will we obey today’s Scriptures?
- With whom will we share today’s Scriptures?
- With whom will we share the story of our salvation and the story of what Jesus has done for us?
In Christi’s love,
