What Shall Separate Us From Jesus?

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38, 39 NKJV)

I remember as child growing up in the church always thinking, if I commit too many sins, i will be denied getting into heaven. I journeyed in life for years with that mentality, thinking I was probably going to hell. But as I got to know the promises outlined in the word of God, realized nothing can separate us from Christ Jesus.

The devil’s main job while we are alive on earth is to keep us from receiving the free gift of salvation,confuse and keep us away from the word of a God. The bible says the devil knows the word and he trembles. It means we have to beware of his traps and understand through the word, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.

Take control of your thoughts today. Allow yourself to hold dominion over any troubles life throws at you through Christ Jesus. The bible says we have power within, so what can separate us from Christ?

Nothing.

Check out this wonderful poem of praise by Lois Beckwith:

Praises to the Saviour give,
He who died that we might live,
For His love, so great, so free,
Praise His Name eternally.

When our hearts were steeped in sin,
Vile and wretched were within,
Jesus left the throne above,
Came to show the Father’s love.

Oh how wondrous was His grace!
He who took the sinner’s place,
Jesus offered “Lo, I come,”
All to bear the sinner home.

Jesus died on Calv’ry’s tree,
There to set the sinner free,
All who on His Name believe,
Everlasting life receive.

What a debt to Him we owe!
Gladly may our praises flow,
Let our cheerful voices raise,
Loud thanksgivings, songs of praise.

Praise the Father and the Son,
That redemption’s work is done,
Magnify that precious Name,
Christ, the Lamb of God, who came.

Worthy is the Lamb once slain,
Praise and magnify His Name,
Laud and honour may we bring,
To our Saviour, Priest and King.

Glory unto Jesus be,
He who died to set us free,
Let us worship and adore,
Praise His Name forevermore.

    I’m so glad I haven’t done anything bad enough that God would ever leave me.
