We are inseparable from God’s love. His love is so high and wide and deep that we cannot begin to imagine the vastness of His love. And God’s love will last forever. Not a few years, a couple millenia, but forever. His love will never fail.
Paul lists a wide range of extremes that cannot separate us from God’s love – angels or demons, life or death, present or future – to name a few. He punctuates is by stating that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Pretty amazing love!
There will be times and circumstances in t his life when we do not sense God’s love or do not choose to walk in that love. Yet it is still there. There will be times when we are so crushed or hurting so bad that we cannot begin to feel His love. Yet it is still there, right there, all around us. When we open our hearts and minds and eyes to God’s love, His love comes flooding in. It is not forced upon us, but is always just right there, always surrounding us. Thanks be to God for His great love!!
