Romans 8:18-39

When pain and “hard times” come into our lives, it’s easy to think that God has abandoned/forgotten us. We think, if He were there, He would have done something by now. However, today’s passage says that nothing can separate us from Christ’s love. Here in this passage we see the neither time, events, power, or any created thing can separate us from the love of God.

No events. Not a single distress can remove us from Gods  love, but rather, we can “overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loves us”  Today’s verses also teach that our present sufferings cannot be compared to the coming glory (v. 18) and that God’s good purpose is our transformation into Christ’s image (v. 29). When we understand this, we gain a victorious eternal perspective, which produces hope and perseverance (vv. 24-25).

No time. Nothing we have gone through in the past, are dealing with at present, or will encounter in the future can take us away from Christ. He is with us every step of the way (v. 38).

No power. The unseen powers of evil that try to deceive and entrap us are no match for the Lord, who holds us securely in His omnipotent (all powerful) grasp (v. 39).

No created thing. Only our God is self-existent, and if He calls you His own, nothing and no one—not even you—can break that relationship (v. 39).

As we celebrate this veterans day let us never forgot about God’s love for us!!
