Blessings of Knowing the Love of God Through Christ Jesus

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.

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.

Romans 8:38-39

Blessings of Knowing You Have Been Made Right With God

But you are not controlled by your sinful nature.

You are controlled by the Spirit

if you have the Spirit of God living in you.

(And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ 

living in them do not belong to him at all.)

And Christ lives within you,

so even though your body will die because of sin,

the Spirit gives you life 

because you have been made right with God.

Romans 8:9-10
