Promise of the Week: Romans 8:35, 37-39

Father and Son by Julien Harneis

Have you ever felt unloved or unlovable? Questioned how much you are loved? Or maybe you’ve never given it much thought at all? In all cases Romans 8:35, 37-39 is a promise that will rock your world!

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?… No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Wow, do you see what this is saying? All concepts of time, space and distance, all universal entities, all earthly or “otherworldly” powers, not a single thing on God’s green earth, not even death itself or a single day of your life… *takes breath*… can separate you from the love of God.

He loves you always, all the time, all day, every day! You are loved with the most amazing love always. Always!

Grasping a love that surpasses knowledge

With this in mind my prayer for you (and myself) for this week is found in Ephesians 3:17-19

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
