Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Romans 8:35-39

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;

We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39 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.


Who can separate us from the love of our God and Father?

Who can separate us from the love of Jesus?

His death on the cross does not separate us.

It draws us to Him.


Does our human, death in the flesh?

No, we will be called to the Lord from the grave when He returns.


1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.


Again, we are called to the Lord, not separated from.


Does our circumstances, our hardships separate us?

Does the threat of death?

No, all these things pull us closer to the Lord.


Just as Satan did not understand that having Jesus killed was his undoing.

Warring against Christians, persecuting Christians, just makes us stronger in the Lord.


This world, the principalities, do not understand, the powers of government do not understand.

But nothing can be done to us to take away our salvation.


The grace of God is not removed by men or by death or any hardship we face.

Our Father's love and grace are eternal.


2 Corinthians 5:8

We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
