Today's reading: Romans 7-9
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8: 35 NRSV
Paul speaks about himself from his own experience.
Paul has suffered hardship, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril and (threat of) sword.
And he knows that nothing and no one has ever divided him from the love of God in Jesus Christ.
What sufferings have you lived through?
Has anything in your life separated you from the love of Christ?
What things in the future could try to separate you from Christ's love?
The good news is that NOTHING can!
God, we praise you and thank you that nothing will ever separate us from your love. Help us to hold on to that knowledge whatever life brings! In Jesus' name. Amen.
