38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of Christ Jesus our Lord.
– Romans 8:38-39
Nothing, can separate us from the eminence, unending, unconditional love of Christ Jesus, our Lord and saviour. Just take a moment this morning to read that sentence over a couple of times and try to comprehend what it means. You might be on away on holiday at the moment, or you might still be working hard at home. But where ever you are, whatever you are doing, this verse is for you.
After the internal struggle that Paul expressed at the end of Chapter 7, it is good to see him speak openly about his relationship with God in Romans 8. There are many other verses in Romans 8 that also inspire millions of Christians around the world every day, you can find some of them here. Paul was a man who wrote lots of the 66 Books in the Bible. He started off being a wicked man who persecuted anyone who followed God and after an encounter with the Lord himself, became a follower and preacher of the Good News.
Paul states in this verse that after all he has been through, he is very certain, nothing in creation, will be able to separate you from God. Christ Jesus’ love is so epic that not even death can can separate you from it. So, I leave you with this today, remember this week that whatever you or anyone else does, will not separate you from the almighty Lord God.

We all go through change, if nothing changed life would be boring and we’d never get anywhere in life. Sometimes we go through huge changes in our lives and sometimes they’re fairly small.

As you can see from the title of this post, in this post we will be analysing Bob Hartman’s favourite psalm; 78. Unlike last weeks post, this poem is written by a man called Asaph. Asaph was a Levite in the court of King David. “A member of the Hebrew tribe of Levi, especially of that part of it which provided assistants to the priests in the worship in the Jewish temple.” – Levite Dictionary Definition. This is a very long Psalm which records the history of Gods people from Egypt until the time of King David. Join us and read more, as we uncover new facts about this widely unknown psalm and understand more at the complicated message behind the poem.
