Unstoppable Love (Romans 8:38-39)

“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)

Broken relationships are all around us. A married couple files for divorce. Best friends end their friendship completely. Father and daughter have not seen each other in years. Business partners sell their company because they cannot get along.

Humans are designed for relationship, yet not all of our relationships go smoothly. Conflicts arise, people move away, and different priorities come up. Sometimes a relationship ends quickly, and sometimes it fades over months.

God’s love for us is totally different. His love is unstoppable. There is nothing we can do to stop his love. Even when we fail to honor and obey him, he loves us. Romans 8:38-39 drives home the point that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. Nothing!

This is a promise for you. This is a promise to embrace today. Nothing in all creation can stop your loving Father from loving you.
