And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39 NLT

There is nothing that can separate us from the love of God.  The love of God is relentless, it chases us down.  The Lord desires to lavish His love upon us.  He desires for us to walk in deep intimacy with Him and encounter His love in every area of our lives.  He desires that we would become aware of His presence where ever we find ourselves.

The Lord lavishes His love upon us so that we will in turn lavish His love upon others.  Jesus said that we would be known as His disciples because of the love that is at work within us.  The love of God cannot be counterfeited.  The love of God is unconditional and eternal.  The love of God is unchanging.  It is not based upon performance nor behavior.  But as we come to know Christ in greater ways we come to know the depths of His love.  As we come to know and encounter the love of Christ we will be changed for eternity.
