"Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?"
Here in the mountains the weather can change rapidly. This morning a blue sky disappeared, within minutes, behind dark clouds. Wind and rain followed, driving me to find shelter. Circumstances in life can suddenly change, too. The death of a loved one, divorce, illness, a natural disaster, or other misfortune can threaten to undo us. Friends and family come along side us to provide comfort and assistance, and we thank God for them. But even the best of friends and the most loving family members can't be with us every minute. That's when we need someone from whom we can never be separated. We find that someone in the person of Jesus Christ. If we have a relationship with Him, we will never be alone. Not ever.
