That's Nice

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:35-39
I'll be completely honest with you. This is one my absolute favorite passage of scripture in the entire Bible. I have a lot of faves, usually depending on what I think I need for the day. This passage however, is always in the top 3.
In short, and not nearly as eloquently, Paul tells us that nothing, absolutely nothing, can separate me from the love of my God. I am already a conqueror through Christ. Trust me when I say that I know it's not easy, and sometime almost impossible, to live life as though I am already a conqueror. But, that doesn't change the fact that I am in fact a conqueror.
This was on my mind today, and I wanted to share.
