Episode 106 - Nothing can separate you from God’s love

As a child, was there ever a time when you were convinced something was true, only to later find out that it wasn’t? 

 

The cool thing about the promise we discussed today is that it comes with assurance. Scripture tells us we can be convinced and absolutely sure of this promise no matter what comes our way.

 

We can be convinced that there is no power, nothing tangible or intangible, that can actually separate us from God’s love for us. This is what Romans 8:35 tells us.  There is nothing we might encounter…  no troubles, hardships, persecutions, famine, nakedness, danger, or sword that could ever separate us from the love of Christ.

 

But wait, you may ask, where in this list is SIN?

 

AJ discusses that the absence of this on the list troubled her for a long time and how she reconciled it.

 

We also discuss one of the things that truly stood out to Jen – the very first phrase in verses 38-39. She was astounded at how Paul wrote that verse from a point of authority and certainty. “I am sure that I am His, and He is mine. I am in Christ; He is in me. Nothing then can separate us. Nothing can take me out of His hand.” He was clearly confident and sure that nothing could separate us from Him.      

 

It bolsters our soul to have that kind of certainty and the knowledge that we are kept. It gives us the strength to go on another day.

 

We are always tethered to the love of Christ - and that can never ever be severed! It doesn’t matter how far we go or what darkness we enter into. If we are in Christ Jesus, we are tethered to the love of God that will always be there and that we can never escape from. 

 

We live in a fallen world. Everybody surely has experienced physical or emotional loss, pain, and separation from others in this life. It can be hard to wrap our minds around the fact that we are safe in the Hands of our Father. 

 

While we can’t understand this life completely, we can trust that the greater context for all of life is His love

 

This is something we can be convinced of because the Bible says it, and His faithfulness to us proves it! His death on the cross proves it. 

 

Try to acknowledge those times when you have gone through dark periods and seasons, realizing that He was there for you. 

 

It really is one tremendous promise.
