Never Separated from God's Love

Dr. Shell reminded us that one of the reasons we can love God passionately is because His love for us can NEVER be taken away. Paul tells us in Romans 8:38-39, “that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Sometimes situations happen, really bad things that make us question how God could have let such a thing happen, especially if He is supposed to be working all things for our good. Or maybe we have sinned terribly and wonder how God could still love us, but amazingly He does. No matter what we do, or what happens in our life we can NEVER be separated from God’s love.

Dr. Shell gave second grader, Katie, a piece of duct tape and asked what is stickier than duct tape? Answer, duct tape stuck to more duct tape. He handed Katie a piece of duct tape that was stuck to itself and asked her to pull it apart. She gave it her best shot but was unable to do so. This is an example of how we cannot be separated from God. Eventually that tape will wear away but God’s love NEVER will wear away from us.
