The Inseparable Love Of God

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. Romans 8:38-39 ESV

The Apostle Paul writes with Christ-imbued certainty about the incomprehensible love of God. And encourages believers to abide in faith that this is true. This passage compels us to stand and shout “hallelujah.”

Paul likely wrote the Epistle to The Romans while in Corinth. He had been facing grueling times as a Christian church planter. He had suffered rejection from friends, persecution from the government, and imprisonment. But regardless of what people or the circumstances of life did to him, Paul had discovered a vital truth: Nothing that occurs in this realm has the power to separate a believer from the love of God.

In his (highly recommended) devotional, Sparkling Gems From the Greek, Rick Renner takes a closer look at the original Greek used by Paul, and offers a more contemporary interpretive translation of these verses:

I have been persuaded, and remain convinced, that neither death, nor the complications that often arise in life, nor powerful angelic beings, nor even an entire group of high-ranking demonic spirits, nor anything that currently exists, nor anything that could potentially happen in the future, nor any political power, nor anything in the highest heavens, nor anything that resides in the deepest depths, nor anything that has ever been created is capable of disconnecting us from the love of God or of putting any distance between us and the love of God, which is in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Isn’t that beautiful? Write this on your heart. Nothing in this world has the power to separate you from the love of God. Regardless of what you are facing in your life today, God’s love is with you. And nothing can ever disconnect you from this awesome, powerful, all-consuming love!
