Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.
For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39 [AMP]
I end my study of Romans 8 after exactly 2 weeks. Paul sums up this amazing chapter with a conviction of a beautiful piece of theology -> there is nothing that can separate us from the love of God. He declares many things spanning the earthly and spiritual realm that have no purchase on separating us from Gods love.
I am humbled by the Lords call on my life, His choosing to save me from deserved death and then to hold me so tightly that nothing can take me from Him. Secondly, he promises to complete His work…His work in me.
Lord God, thank you for Your love for me and saving from the choices I’ve made that deserve the everlasting punishment You saved me from. Help me grow in you; unleash Your Spirit in a consuming fire filling my heart with faith and an unquenchable desire to seek to be as much like Your Son as possible in this life. I love You!
After some time to go back over my notes, I plan to write up a synopsis of what I’ve learned these last two weeks. Tomorrow though – it’s back to Luke.
