New Living Translation (NLT)
Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love
31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.
35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[a]) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
These verses contain one of the most comforting promises in all scripture. Believers have always had to face hardships in many forms: persecution,illness,imprisonment, and even death. These sometimes cause them to fear that they have been abandoned by Christ. But Paul explains that is impossible to be separated from Christ. His death for us is proof of his unconquerable love. Nothing can separate us from Christ presences. God tells us how great his love is for us so we will feel totally secure in him. If we believe these overwhelming assurances, we will not be afraid. It does not matter where you are at today in your life good or bad, Christ loves you and is there for you. It is not what you can do to to be made righteous in Christ sight, but what he does for you. Believe on Jesus today and trust him with your life. Jesus will do the rest.
