God’s Love

Last year I went on a mission trip to Belize. One of our trip leaders told us that if we really wanted to show love, we might be asked to do things outside our comfort zone.
I thought about that for a long time. If we truly love God and other people, we may be challenged to do things we have never done before. Often we are tempted to do things the easy way, but we need to remember that being a Christian is not always easy.
In our Bible verses today, we learn that God will always be with us. Nothing can separate us from His love. “Yes, I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love — not death, life, angels, or ruling spirits” (verse 38a). We also learn that when we face hard times, “we have complete victory through God, who has shown his love for us” (verse 37). God may ask you to do difficult things today. Don’t give up. Depend on Him to give you victory and joy.
