Romans 8:35 (ESV) we are posed with the question, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?”

In Romans eight thirty-five we are asked whether anything can ever separate us from Christ’s love does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity were persecuted or hungry or destitute or in danger or threatened with death.

This passage is one of the most beautiful summits in the entire Bible it tells of the eternal unchangeable unfathomable life-transforming love of God for us in Christ Jesus our lord the passage reminds me when my children were little we used to play a game by asking each other how much we loved each other and then seeing how wide we could spread our arms and saying this is much no matter what they did I could never manage to express the depth of my love for them or them towards me.

The writer James boys used the analogy of a mountain climber tied to his guide with a rope even though the path of the mountain might be dangerous and slippery the climber never falls completely because of the rope Christ is our guide who never slips and the rope that ties us securely to him is his great love for us as seen in the cross.

Before you and I pray together plus the app for a few minutes and be honest in front of Jesus when having you recently doubted his love doubted his presence doubted the strength of the rope. Doubted the cross.

Dear loving god the way is steep my life is hard at times it’s dangerous to help me today feel the strength of the rope help me today believe the cross help me today experience first hand your eternal unchangeable unfathomable life-transforming love for me and your son Christ Jesus my lord that no matter my troubles calamities persecution hunger danger or threat your love is stronger than it all.

Give me the hope today that I can only find in you that nothing can ever separate me from you enter love. In the name of Jesus amen.
