Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35
God the Absolute loves us absolutely. “Tribulation” can neither squeeze nor thrash us out of His heart. Being hemmed in, cornered, can’t remove you from God’s love. Pursuit by enemies only drives us deeper into His loving arms. Shameful exposure brings us His compassion. Threatening circumstances result in His passion to protect us. The sword cannot slice us from His unlimited love. The totality of adversity for the child is met with the totality of affection from the Father.
