Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love
“If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?
Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
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.”

Saint Patrick and Saint Paul- called to share God’s love
Saint Patrick was not born in Ireland , although he is considered the Irish patron saint. He was born in Britain, controlled by the Roman Empire. Kidnapped and taken as a slave to Ireland, he later escaped, but returned as a missionary, bringing the Christian Gospel to Ireland.
Saint Paul was also a missionary to the part of the Roman world surrounding the eastern Mediterranean sea. Paul identified himself as a “slave of Jesus Christ” (Romans 1:1) .
Much of the new Testament contains Paul’s writings, including the letter written to the early Christians in Rome. Today Christians read, share, and memorize these verses which so aptly express the foundation of our faith- God’s unchanging love.

Weekend Words of faith, hope, and love
(1 Corinthians 13:1)
Have a blessed week. Dr. Aletha
Luke 18:9-14, ERV
There were some people who thought they were very good and looked down on everyone else. Jesus used this story to teach them:
“One time there was a Pharisee and a tax collector. One day they both went to the Temple to pray.
The Pharisee stood alone, away from the tax collector. He said,
‘O God, I thank you that I am not as bad as other people. I am not like men who steal, cheat, or commit adultery. I thank you that I am better than this tax collector.
“The tax collector stood alone too. But when he prayed, he would not even look up to heaven. He felt very humble before God. He said,
‘O God, have mercy on me. I am a sinner!’
I tell you, when this man finished his prayer and went home, he was right with God. But the Pharisee, who felt that he was better than others, was not right with God.
People who make themselves important will be made humble. But those who make themselves humble will be made important.”
