no thing / no one

I just had to share the last few verses of Romans 8.

What if we lived like we believed we are loved like this?

What if we told the people around us every day about this kind of love that's available to them?


28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

31b  If God is for us, who can ever be against us?

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love?

Does it mean He no longer loves us if we have trouble,

or calamity,

or are persecuted,

or hungry,

or destitute,

or in danger,

or threatened with death?

36 (As the Scriptures say, "For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.")

37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

  38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love.

Neither death nor life,

neither angels nor demons,

neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow;

not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love.

39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below;

indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Is there anyone reading this that feels separated from God?



Un_______? (you fill in the blank)

Paul says “nothing” can separate us from God's love.

As in “no thing” (or no one).
