Bits and Pieces: Love

"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 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," (Romans 8:38, 39).

* These verses represent one of the greatest truths in all of the New Testament!--- that we as Christians are secure in the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Earthly relationships may fail, circumstances may seem overwhelming, and we may feel like we've been abandoned by the Savior--- but Paul would remind us of this unchangeable truth: we can never be separated from the Lord Jesus' love.

* The more adverse our circumstances, the more comforting are these words of assurance. Paul exhorts the persecuted Roman believers from his own experience--- nothing mortal or immortal, in time or eternity, can sever the love relationship God has established with us through salvation in His Son.
No matter how forlorn or forsaken we may feel, the unchangeable truth is that we are eternally secure in God's love.
