Nothing Can Separate Us From The Love Of Christ
Chapter 8 of Romans speaks about the law of the Spirit. Christ came to fulfill the law that we may be free to walk by the Spirit and not by the flesh. So that we may be conquerors and receive eternal life.
"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." Romans 8:2
Through Christ, we are more than conquerors.
There is still accusation against us, and rightfully so, but through the sacrifice of Christ and the asking of forgiveness for our sins there is now no condemnation. Christ paid the ultimate price. And through Him, our victory is won.
Verse 11 tells us that the very Spirit of God that raised Christ from the dead dwells in us. How powerful.
When we give our lives over to God and walk in the Spirit nothing can ultimately have victory over us. When we make the choice to die daily to self, watching and praying, nothing can separate us from communion with our Savoir.
So, when the enemy tries to bring up the files of the past we can know that Christ has interceded on our behalf.
Not even death can separate from the love Jesus has for 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 8:38,39
We have been given a beautiful gift, the ultimate gift...victorious life, eternal life. Let us not struggle on our own, but pray for the Spirit and lay it all at Jesus' feet.
What am I struggling with most in my life right now? Is it because I'm trying to conquer through my own will and might?
Give it to Jesus. He's got it.
Thank You for coming to give me victory over sin and death. Help me to not squander Your gift or set it aside in vain but to give my struggles to You. To be filled with Your Holy Spirit that I may overcome. "But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57
