STAY IN LOVE

“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 created
thing, shall be able to separate us from the
love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”
(Romans 8:38-39).

Death is deep and dark.
Life is vanity and vexation of spirit.
Principalities and powers are immovable,
Things present are uncertain:
Things to come unknown.
There are mysteries in the height and depth
Of this universe,
Yet none of these can separate us
From the love of God,
Which is in Christ the Lord.
Who shall separate us from His love?
Shall tribulation or distress?
Persecution or famine?
Nakedness, peril or sword?
No! For God is love.
This love passeth all understanding
A bond of perfectness—
So walk in His love.
He that dwelleth in love
Dwelleth in God—
And God in him.
