Nothing Shall Separate Us From Christ
31 So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can stand against us. And God is with us. 32 He even let his own Son suffer for us. God gave his Son for all of us. So now with Jesus, God will surely give us all things. 33 Who can accuse the people God has chosen? No one! God is the one who makes them right. 34 Who can say that God’s people are guilty? No one! Christ Jesus died for us, but that is not all. He was also raised from death. And now he is at God’s right side, speaking to him for us. 35 Can anything separate us from Christ’s love? Can trouble or problems or persecution separate us from his love? If we have no food or clothes or face danger or even death, will that separate us from his love? 36 As the Scriptures say,
“For you we are in danger of death all the time.
People think we are worth no more than sheep to be killed.”
37 But in all these troubles we have complete victory through God, who has shown his love for us. 38-39 Yes, I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love—not death, life, angels, or ruling spirits. I am sure that nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us or nothing below us—nothing in the whole created world—will ever be able to separate us from the love God has shown us in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Nothing can separate us from Jesus Christ!
The realization that once we accept Jesus as Savior we become inseparable from Him is so exciting! Though we live in different worlds for now, we are connected by the Holy Spirit. We have a union between our spirit and His. What a wondrous truth. When reading Romans chapter 8, we find a whole list of what we are in Him. The most exciting one is that NOTHING can separate us—ever! We need to grasp that fact with both hands and rejoice in it. It should make us more fearless. It should calm all the anxiety of feeling alone or cut off. Let us walk in this precious truth with a joyful and thankful heart.
