“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life…nor things present nor things to come… shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8: 38a, 39b
By: Leigh Tang Wing
“King Jesus, in Your presence is where I belong. I find life in your presence, and there I am strong. Thank You for Your love that is so firm that nothing can cause it to diminish or die. Your love for me is guaranteed. Help me to love You with all of me.”
Imagine enjoying the cool breeze at the beach, or taking a relaxing stroll through the park, or perhaps viewing the lush mountain range from a high place. Visualize it for a moment… yes, that’s it! In all of nature we can see the beauty of God, but all of nature pales in comparison with the apex of creation—human beings. You and me.
God’s love for us is so strong that Paul declared that nothing can separate us from His love. Nothing. Nothing you can do, nothing anyone can do to you. No evil curse, no demon in hell, not even death can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord— in Christ Jesus. And, it is only when we are in Christ, that we can fully experience this love and walk in all of its benefits.
It is in Christ that we receive life and life more abundantly; it is in Him that we are empowered to accomplish the will of God. So, today, let’s give thanks unto God and praise His holy name. Celebrate God’s love for you that is in Christ Jesus your Lord.
