The word love is probably one of the most overused words in the English language. We love everything! We love chocolate cake; we love football; we love our parents or children; and, of course, we love God.
Love is the center of countless movies, novels, and songs. As children, we did not fully understand the importance or the need for God’s love. But now that we’re older, we know life is unpredictable. We also know that God’s love abounds.
I’m not sure what is in store for us tomorrow or next week or next year. But I do know that nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus! Nothing–not life or death. Not financial turmoil, not social distancing, not COVID-19, not rampant racism, not suffering or sickness, successes, or failures.
Nothing can separate us from God’s love!
