Romans 8:35 ” Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? “

This week has been one for the record books as we proceed into the uncharted waters of a pandemic.  So the Scripture today is especially important to not only read, but to internalize.  There is nothing that can separate us from  the love of Jesus…not mandatory isolation, or calamity on the air waves, or the fear within us.  And Paul was so persuaded of this that he wrote, starting in verse 38, “For I am convinced that neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation , will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  This virus may have us sequestered from friends…but not from God.  It may have us cut off from our Church, but not from the Body of Believers.  Finally, this virus will never be virulent enough to take God’s love away, and “In all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us.”
