And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Okay, if you’re not in awe right now, read that again! Those two verses, Romans 8:38-39, are so powerful. Nothing can separate us from God’s love; nothing!
Sadly, there are a lot of times in life when we feel like God doesn’t love us. There’s one cause for that feeling that I’d like to focus on. We all know that life has its ups and downs. In the downs, it can feel like we’re all alone in the world, unloved. That is a lie! You see, no matter what’s going on in your life, no matter what you’ve done, God always loves you. Always. And nothing can change that. And in Romans, Paul lists a few examples. Neither life nor death can separate us from God. Demons (which are fallen angels) cannot bar us from His love. And even though we get caught up in the worries of life, God is with us through it all. His love is never-ending and unconditional. He sent His one and only Son to die for you so that you could spend eternity with Him (John 3:16). Love like that doesn’t vanish; it’s always there.
It’s a little hard for us to grasp this. I mean, have you ever seen unconditional love that will last through all eternity? Love that cannot be shaken no matter what? It’s awe-inspiring, really. That’s God’s love. And nothing can separate you from it.
So remember: God loves you!
