Nothing Can Separate You from God's Love
“Live and act in a way worthy of those who have been chosen for such wonderful blessings as these.” (Ephesians 4:1, TLB)
God will never ever stop loving you. You will always be loved. Nothing can destroy your relationship with God. If you grasp this fact, it will change your life.
Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us” (TLB).
When you put your hand in God’s hand, he grasps it—and never lets go. You might feel like letting go at times. But God never will. You are eternally secure.
Once you are born into a family, you can’t be unborn out of it. Once you’re born again, you can’t be unborn out of the family of God. Once your name is written in the eternal book of life, it can’t be erased. It’s indelible ink.
It doesn’t matter how many doubts or fears you have or how many sins you commit. If you put your trust in Christ, he says nothing—nothing!—will separate you from his love. No matter what you face in life, you will never face it alone.
This is the Good News: You are forgiven, and you are free. God is for you, and he’s never going to stop loving you.
Understanding this Good News is the most important thing for you, and for every other person on this planet. It’s why thousands of people have committed to pray for and give to Daily Hope so that we can spread this message of hope. It’s why Saddleback Church was built. It’s why we train pastors around the world. It’s why we do student ministry, children’s ministry, and hundreds of other ministries.
And it’s why countless other churches around the globe are doing similar things every day. Because no one else can offer what Jesus Christ offers: a life of freedom, forgiveness, power, peace, and purpose that goes on and on for eternity.
What should be your response? “Live and act in a way worthy of those who have been chosen for such wonderful blessings as these” (Ephesians 4:1 TLB).
Live in a way that’s worthy. Live with hope, and share that hope with others.
