Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Paul stated a truth that is a great encouragement to us – there is nothing that can separate us from the love of Christ – and gave evidence for it – a search was made through every circumstance and situation that could possibly separate an individual from God’s love and the conclusion is made that there is nothing that can separate a born-gain believer from it.
