Romans 8:35, 37-39 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Romans 8:35, 37-39

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?...No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, 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 morning, I was reading In Romans 8 about how nothing can separate us from the love of God because of Jesus!! As I was praying, I was thinking about Jesus and how He acted after the resurrection versus how I would have acted. I probably would have been arrogant, vengeful, and very much “I told you so “attitude!! But He did not!! He said, “Go and tell them the good news!! Tell them I did it and that I did it for them!!”


We are them!!! Thank You, Jesus!! Where my face would have been resentful and angry, His face had nothing but love, compassion, victory, and forgiveness on it! Where I would have wanted people to feel bad for what they did to me, He wanted them to feel the forgiveness He bought for them!!


We serve a mighty God, and yes, He will judge one day, but trust me, He wants as many of His children to come home as possible!! I can hear and see Jesus after He rose that Sunday – face shining, grinning from ear to ear, barely able to contain His excitement, and saying, “I did it for you, and you, and especially YOU reading this!!!”


I have been loved by some amazing people, but I promise you that nothing compares to the love of our Savior!!!!!


I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, the Holy Spirit, and our Risen King!!!!!
