Nothing Can Separate Us From God's Love
Chosen by God!
When we worship God we should thank Him for His faithful promises. Paul’s reassuring words in Romans 8:31-39, is a wonderful basis for worshiping and thanking God for who He is and what He has done.
"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:
“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 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 8:31-39 NKJV)
These verses remind us the power of relationship between us and our Father. These verses are filled with eternal promises. These verses speak of the Father’s heart, His grace, His love toward us.
No matter what we may go through, no matter who comes against us, we can be assured that God is for us. He is on our side. He loved us, and loves us, so much that He sent His Son to die for us. There was no sacrifice He wasn’t willing to make to keep us close to Him eternally. He knew we couldn’t pay the price for sin so He sent Jesus in our place so we could have a place in His family, as His precious children. It amazes me that even after doing this He opened up all He is, and all He has to us. Nothing is off limits when we walk with the Lord.
God won’t even listen to accusations from the enemy about us because He sees us redeemed and in right standing. We are justified because of the blood of Jesus. We can’t be condemned because Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father and intercedes on our behalf. And the best benefit of all is that because of Jesus nothing, no one, can separate us from His love. Hallelujah! We have victory through Him, again because of that great love. We are more than conquerors! His love for us builds a bridge from us to Him and nothing can cause Him to love us less.
When we look at all of this how can we not worship Him? How can we not be confident in His love for us?
