Who can take away that kind of love? Can problems or sorrows or persecution or hunger or poverty or even death?
The scripture says, "Because of You, Lord, they are out to kill us day and night We are no better off than sheep ready to go under the butcher's knife." But it doesn't matter. We have already won because God loves us.
I know for certain that whether we live or die, no power in heaven or earth, now or ever, above or below, indeed nothing in the entire universe, can ever take away the love God has for us. This love He has already shown in sending Jesus to us.
