Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died, more than that, who raised to life, is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble of hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long, we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 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 creations, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:34-39
Nothing can separate us from God’s love. When you trust Jesus as your Savior, he united himself with you in eternal matrimony. Many things threaten to rip apart this holy bond, principalities and powers, controlling people, dire circumstances, but nothing can succeed, not even death. In fact, dying open the way to ecstatic enjoyment of Christ, exponentially better than your best moments on earth. Jesus embody not only perfect love, but all the fullness of deity as well. In Jesus you have everything you could ever need. Feelings of emptiness can serve as signals, reminding you to turn back towards him. No matter what you are doing, he can be a co-participant with you. As you invite Jesus more and more aspects of your life, you will discover a growing contentment within you. In times of adversity you can lean on him for support, in joyous times you can celebrate with him. Jesus is as near to you as a whispered prayer, even nearer, his banner over you is his Love.
Grace and Peace to You My Friends
