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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom 8:38-39)~~ God having manifested His love in giving His own Son for us, can we think that any thing should turn aside or do away that love? Troubles and trials neither cause nor show any reduction or loss of His love. Whatever we may be separated from, God’s love remains. Nothing can take Christ from us; Nothing can take us from Him; and that is enough. We may surround ourselves with the possessions of this world, but what vain things are they! Can we say of any of them, “Who shall separate us?” We will eventually be removed from possessions, pleasant dwellings, family, friends, and estates. At last we must part, if by no other means, then by death. Then farewell to all this world accounts as most valuable. And what is left for the poor soul, who has not had Christ? Nothing but that which they would gladly part with, but could not; the condemning guilt of all their sins! But the soul that is in Christ, when other things are pulled away, even in death, cleaves to Christ, and these separations pain him not. Yes! Even when that horrible death comes, that breaks all other unions, even that of the soul and body, our soul is carried into the nearest union with its beloved Lord Jesus, and the full enjoyment of Him forever. In this I am forever comforted! I don’t care how much of anything you have… If you don’t have a loving relationship with Jesus now, you will never know Peace!!
