Nothing Can Seperate Us

Romans 8:38-39 (New American Standard Bible)
38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
39nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
You are looking at a picture of a portion of the Great Wall of China. It is one of the seven man made Wonders of the World. The wall was constructed over 2000 years ago before the time of Christ. It stretches for about 4000 miles. That would be the distance across the United States from east to west coast and half way back again. The average height is 25 feet. The wall is 15-25 feet wide. If you could drive a car the length of the wall traveling at 100 mph it would take you 40 hours to drive it. The passage today tells us that NOTHING can separate us from the love of God. Not time or space or mistakes we have made, wrong decisions, past failures, rebellious behavior, bankruptcy, divorce, prison, disease, foreclosure, addictions, depression, NOTHING can separate us from God's love...except our unwillingness to receive it. The prodigal son separated himself from his father but not his fathers love. When he came home his Father was waiting and willing to receive him as if he had never left. Do you know someone that needs to hear this message today? Share it with them it could change their life.
