Bumps on the Road to Heaven!

Can anything separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble, suffering, and hard times, or hunger and nakedness, or danger and death?  It is exactly as the Scriptures say, "For you we face death all day long. We are like sheep on their way to be butchered."  In everything we have won more than a victory because of Christ who loves us.  I am sure that nothing can separate us from God's love--not life or death, not angels or spirits, not the present or the future,  and not powers above or powers below. Nothing in all creation can separate us from God's love for us in Christ Jesus our Lord!

Romans 8: 35 - 39

Nothing can separate you from the Love of Christ, but the Love of Christ does not always separate you from suffering and persecution!  It is, in fact during the difficulties of life that the Love of Christ is the most precious.

You may ask, “How could a loving Savior not rescue His followers from every problem He sees them encounter?”  From a human perspective that is a difficult question, but from the view of God Almighty the answer is simple.  Jesus sees, even your greatest suffering and problems as bumps on the road to Heaven.  None of your struggles are Eternally fatal and they cannot separate you from Christ’s love!

But when you endure suffering and pain as Jesus did, you become more like the Savior!  To be like Jesus is indeed the greatest honor on earth and how you deal with trouble is the greatest evidence that you are like Him!

“Lord Jesus, thank You for loving me and letting me live as You did even through the pain and suffering of this life!  Praise Your Holy Name forever.  Amen.”
