As I begin this journey, intentionally considering the myriad of blessings of my life, past, present, and still to come, I pause to remind myself that the answer to the question posed in Romans 8:35 is “NO ONE”.  “NOTHING” not even I can separate myself from the love of Christ.  In fact if I read the Bible correctly, NO ONE, even the most apathetic or evil, can escape Christ’s love.

One can ignore it.

One can laugh at it.

One can distort it.

One can reject it.

One can persecute those who accept it.

One can seek to destroy it.


Can ESCAPE it.

Today I am thankful for the inescapable love of God through Christ Jesus, my Lord.  My prayer is that I can grow in that love so that I can love like Christ.
