“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution , or famine, or nakedness, or sword?”
It’s a powerful question for all of us to consider: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” Behind all the evil in the world is a person, the evil one, who tries to use circumstances to separate us from God’s love. These circumstances include tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness or the fear of the sword—death itself.
But here is the key to remember today: God is stronger than all his wiles. His love, mostly proven in the incarnation and the cross, prove the Father’s love. It is the strongest force in the world. Nothing can beat it. Nothing can overpower it. In the end, God’s love allows all his people to persevere and conquer.
Do you know the love of the Father through Jesus today? Do you know the extent to which he’d go to win you to himself? If you doubt it, remember the incarnation and the cross. Both prove how much God loves us. Through this love, we are never separated from him.
Therefore, nothing can overpower us today—or any day!
