This Romans 8 passage is very well known, and though it may make me "typical", it is one of my favourites as well.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[e] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
This past weekend an aunt and an uncle of mine both passed away on the same day. Two sisters had married two brothers, so that means my aunt lost her sister and her husband, and my uncle lost his brother and his wife, all on the same day. What grief!
At times like that all we can do is cling to the promises of God. He grieves with us. He loves us through it all. And He gives us hope.
For those that have passed on, it was a glorious day - indeed they didn't have to wait long to experience a heavenly reunion with each other!
