Please remind me today to choose You, O Lord, before everything else. May my life demonstrate loving You every minute.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 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 8:38-39 NIV
Many of you may immediately remember President George W. Bush quoting this scripture to the Nation after the terrorist attacks of September 11th. God’s love for us is so strong, deep, powerful, and perfect that nothing can separate us from it. You are loved.
How wonderful to receive this love, to cling to it, and depend on it. Is anything able to separate God from your love? If not your love, what about your time, attention or obedience? What types of things pull us away: television, schedules, past mistakes, or pride? What takes the place of time you could be spending with God? What reasons or excuses do you cling to that keep you from drawing nearer to Him? Does your list consist of angels, powers, death or lesser things? We cannot allow such things to pull us away from the most important, most extraordinary, most valuable way to spend our time.
How can each of us carry out the attribute of being inseparable from God in our daily environment (classroom, hallways, meetings, cafeteria, office, etc.)?
