NOTHING removes us from Christ’s love

What can possibly separate us from Christ’s love?
Can pain and suffering, hardships or distress,
harassment, torment, or torture,
starvation or destitution,
danger or death? No!

The Scriptures say, “For Your sake, Lord,
we’ve been destroyed. We've been thought of
as sheep to be slaughtered!”

But, now –
in all these things we are more than conquerors
through Christ Jesus Who loves us!

For I am certain that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor principalities,
neither anything going on right now
nor anything yet to come –

not soaring heights or plunging depths,
and not anything in all of creation
will ever be able to separate us
from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
