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 8:39
Paul hated christians at one point in his life and even killed them. But God revealed himself to paul and on the road to Damascus God really showed him who he was touching, who is what that he was killing. God did not hate Paul but hated paul's sin. Once Paul was aware of God and who he was he was truely converted! He never went back to his old way of living and he encourage many! Nothing seperated Paul from the love he knew God had for him, even when he was killing off God's people. If Paul had let go of the love of God he would have went back to his old way of living. So he was encouraging us to not let anything seperate us from the love of God. God will love us no matter what, but we can make ourselves think that God does not love us for what we may have done in our past. We cannot let our past determine our future. God knew who Paul really was. And once Paul came into the knowledge of God, God began to show him who he really was. Just like God is saying to you, I know you did this and you have done that but Abide in me and I in you You will bear much fruit. John 15:4 That is what Paul did, he beared much fruit while he was here on earth. Paul let nothing seperate him from the love of God non of those things listed in that verse above he let seperate him from God so I encourage you to do the same today!
