Nothing can separate us! (2003-05-19 - 5:16 p.m.)

"God does not keep a man immune from trouble; He says--'I will be with him in trouble.'" There are people all over the world who will tell you that if you believe in God or trust in Jesus that all your troubles will float away like so much chaff. Well, friends, that is a lie! God never promises an easy road. He does, however, promise to be with us through and deliver us from all of our troubles. Remember the passage from Romans 8. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Nothing! "Paul is not talking of imaginary things, but of things that are desperately actual; and he says we are super-victors in the midst of them, not by our ingenuity, or by our courage, or by anything other than the fact that not one of them affects our relationship to God in Jesus Christ." (These quotes are from Oswald Chambers, by the way.) Let me quote Romans 8:35ff: "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, 'For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present 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 in Christ Jesus our Lord." What powerfully comforting words those are to any believer!

Got to go, supper is ready.
