Romans 8:35-36 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,“For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
The life of a Christian isn’t without problems, though some expect it to be. The truth is we often find ourselves facing more problems because we’re Christians. We might be persecuted, made-fun-of, mistreated, untrusted, or any number of things because we’ve chosen to follow Christ. Unlike the rest of the world, though, we’ve got a God on our side who gets us through it all. Nothing can separate us from His love.
Honestly, when we get down to the bottom of why we’re attacked at times, it’s precisely to try and separate us from God. The insults, the dangers, the threats, they’re intended to get us to turn away from Him. Fortunately for us, God is holding onto us tightly through the storms, showing us that He’s on our side. What the enemy meant to take us from God will in most cases only serve to draw us closer to Him as we seek shelter in Him. In the trials, His love shows through even more.
