31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Let us run into His everlasting arms. Jesus said that He will never leave you, He will never forsake you. He will be with you unto the end. Last year, and this year so far, has brought us many challenges and some tragedies, and yet we trust in Him. Hebrews tells us, “Now the just shall live by faith”. It speaks of those who overcame tremendous odds, fears, and death. Many chose torture and did not accept deliverance, but instead chose death, that they obtain a better resurrection. Please read Hebrews chapters 11-13. You will be blessed to read of the Bibles heroes of faith who walked knowing that nothing could separate them from the love of God.
Hold tight to your faith and trust in Him who is trustworthy.
