What is God saying to you through the scriptures today?
What a powerful, encouraging, and motivating promise from God!
The reality of our experience is that life can often be difficult and we face many challenges and hardships. We will all experience pain throughout our lives; the promise is not that we will live a pain-free life. We’ve also each made decisions that have hurt ourselves and others which can leave us feeling guilty, shameful, or full of regret. We wonder how could God ever love us because of what we’ve done, but the promise we read today is that NOTHING can ever separate us from God’s love that was revealed to us through Christ. That his death was for us, he was raised to life for us, and he now intercedes for us.
The price of our sin has been paid in full for those that are in Christ!
Let us pray together the prayer we learned during the Gospel series:
Jesus, thank you that there is nothing I can do that would make you love me more, and nothing I have done that makes you love me less. Your presence and approval are all I need for everlasting joy. As you have been to me, so I will be to others. As I pray, I’ll measure your compassion by the cross and your power by the resurrection. Amen.
