Romans: Nothing Stands Between Us but Love

09 Week 9 Romans Banner

May 14: Nothing Stands Between Us but Love

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

Romans 8 ends with two verses (38-39) which are well worth memorizing: 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.

It’s certainly one thing to read these words from the Apostle Paul and breathe them in to soothe your anxious soul. Music artist John Mark McMillan, however, writes this verse as if God Himself is singing it over you. Imagine for moment that God Himself is singing, and you’re simply listening to His voice:

Nothing stands between us

Nothing stands between us, but love now

Nothing stands between us

Nothing stands between us but love

READING & JOURNALING:

     ROMANS 8:35-39

In what ways is God inviting you to rest in the promises of Romans 8:35-39 today?

Consider taking the opportunity to write out this passage and memorize it over the next week. 

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, this passage is the ultimate reminder that absolutely nothing stands between You and me, except for the love you continually offer. Today, may I give up any self-centered desire to earn Your love, but instead rest in the truth that You offer it to me freely. May I rest in Your loving presence each day. In Jesus’ name. Amen. 

(End with 1-2 minutes of silence)
