Top 100 Children’s Bible Memory Verses: Nothing Can Separate Us From God’s Love – The Story Behind Romans 8:38, 39

Romans 8:38, 39 are favorite children’s Bible memory verses, but how many know the story behind these verses?

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels or demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Paul was a great missionary and went around planting churches everywhere.  This particular letter he wrote to the church in Rome.  Surprisingly he had never been there.  The church was planted by those who had come to Christ and then went to Rome and started a church.

Paul wrote this letter to encourage the Roman church and to give them a proper foundation in their faith.

In chapter 8 Paul wrote about the wonderful position believers hold as God’s children.  They are free from indwelling sin, are sons and daughters through the Spirit, looking forward to a glorious future.

At the end of Chapter 8 Paul told the Romans about God’s everlasting love and how nothing can separate them from that love.  In verses 38 and 39 Paul pointed out the specific things that many thought would be able to separate them from God’s love, and then went on to say that because of Christ Jesus work on their behalf, nothing could separate them from God’s love.

Hurray!!!!
