Winsome Wednesday - Nothing! Absolutely Nothing!

Nothing, nothing....no nothing can separate us from the love of God!  Not our actions, not our past, not who we are, not what we've said... Nothing!

Actually, only sin separates us from God, not from His love though.  And because of His grace and mercy He gives us opportunity daily to come before Him and clean the slate.  Relationship with the Lord is the only way we can keep doing heart checks, (Ps 26 v 2:  Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my mind and my heart.)


The word says it so well:
Romans 8 v 35 - 38:  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) nor height nor depth, nor other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Nothing you do is going to chase God away.  He just isn't phased by anything we do that we think is bad.  He is LOVE!

God bless
Tracy

  5. "Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (38) nor height nor depth, nor other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" - no matter what threatens or stresses:) - I needed that today!

  6. I think about this verse and how often we fall so short of having this kind of unconditional love for others. It's easy to say, "I love you, no matter what you say or do." But to actually not let others' behavior affect how we respond to them isn't easy to do. God never changes how He responds to us. He's always the same - loving and merciful. I'm humbled by this.
    In His love, Ann @ Christ in the Clouds

  7. Romans 8:38-39 were in my verses to learn for Beth Moore's siestas memory verse challenge earlier this year. They ministered to me so much. Your post reminded me of these, and blessed me again!

  8. I love those verses! I often use them as a *battle cry* against the lies the enemy tries to tell me. It is a resounding reply to his insidious question, "Is God really good?" Yes, indeed He is. The cross proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt, and I will NEVER be separated from that love!

    GOD BLESS!
