Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

This is a rhetorical question. The answer is obvious ”nothing.” Nothing can separate you from the love of Jesus. This is great but you must dig deeper to appreciate this and use it. You must use this scripture to your spiritual health for faith survival!

Since “nothing” is the answer, and he lists various possible scenarios, (trouble, hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness, danger, or the sword) it is clear that the love of Jesus is certain. No situation is too great. Note two points in this scripture. One, that “nothing” means “nothing” with a caveat and that you will face trials.

First, in the faith, as you live in his truth, you will excel under difficulty because you know Jesus love is real and tangible in the spiritual realm. You can be sure that your faith will stand. Depend on it. He is true, so trust him and you will stand.

Second, trials are inferred in the text as things that can happen to you. The list is not exhaustive. You are not immune to problems due to faith. Actually, you are more at risk. This should give you a sober view of the future and keep you from being surprised at difficulties. This is a hedge not to be minimized.

Remain in the Spirit through the Word, meditation and prayer. Love as guided and expect difficulties. In this, nothing can separate you from the love of Jesus. Remember this and you will have victory.
