“And I am convinced that nothing can separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither fear 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!”
If you didn’t know you are loved by the creator of this world, then these two verses will change your life. If you are thinking you are not worthy of God’s love, then again, read these two verses aloud and replace the us with I!! It is a fact, clearly written by the writer of Romans, that we are loved by God. There is nothing that than anyone in the world can say otherwise. It is there in black and white. God loves YOU!
The writer of Romans could have just said that ‘God loves you!’ and end it there. But he didn’t. He chose to expand, to prove beyond any doubt, that there is seriously nothing in this world that can separate us from God’s love revealed in Jesus Christ. We are loved because of what Christ did for us! There is no sin too great or place so far that we can escape God’s love. He loved you from the moment you were born to your dying breath, regardless of how you have lived your life. The challenge for us, is to firstly accept His love, and secondly, let His love change and transform your life. There is no use in being loved, living a life that rejects that love, and not letting it transform the way you act or think. If you are so deeply loved, then as part of accepting that love, you will want your lifestyle and bad habits to change.
Don’t just settle and be comfortable in the truth that God loves you, but let His love take you closer to Him and further away from things that stop you acknowledging His love. You are loved.. Receive it!
