Nothing Can Separate You From God’s Love | Institute of Love
When you are a true disciple of Jesus Christ, you are someone who has deep roots and lasts long! You are not the type of person who hears God's message and immediately receive it with joy, but then fall away and separate from God as soon as you have problems or are persecuted for believing God’s Word, or because of the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for things. (See Mark 4:16-19) No! You are a true follower of Christ, rooted and grounded in His love (See Ephesians 3:17), going around testifying that you are convinced that nothing can ever separate you from God’s love. Neither trouble nor calamity, persecution or hunger, destitution or danger, or death threats. No, neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither your fears for today nor your worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate you 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 you from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (See Romans 8:35-39) Nothing!
