Sharing the inseparable love of God

Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love

Romans chapter 8, NLT 

“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 we know that God causes all things to work together for good to tose who love God Romans 8:28

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 from the book Romans

Romans 13      English Standard Version (ESV)

Submission to the Authorities

13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment

For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,

for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.

Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing.

Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.

statue of George Washington in Manhattan
General George Washington, first President of the United States of America

“George Washington is a large bronze sculpture of George Washington by John Quincy Adams Ward, located on the front steps of Federal Hall National Memorial, on Wall Street in New York City. The statue was unveiled in 1883 to commemorate Washington’s first inauguration in 1789. At the time, Federal Hall, which served as the capitol building of the United States, stood on the site, and Washington took the oath of office on the balcony of that building, approximately where the statue now stands.”  source  Wikipedia
