Not Separated

I had the joy of reading this following passage aloud in church the other day. The words are so powerful when read out loud.

‘I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ Romans 8:38-9


A New Year gives us time to look back and to look forward. For most of us 2019 has given us good memories and some we wish to forget. 2020 feels like a fresh start and we need to leave the last year behind. Kindness and forgiveness can bring help and comfort to all.

‘Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.’ Ephesians 4:32

Not Ashamed

God is in control of everything. We do not need to run the world. He has only asked us to be obedient and tell others of His judgement and love.

‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes.’ Romans 1:16


Are we sometimes afraid or terrified about the future. We don’t need to be; God goes with us and before us.

‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord our God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.’ Deuteronomy 31:6
