The Great Barrier

What will separate us from the love of Christ?
- Romans 8:35
There us only one thing that can separate us from the love of Christ: sin. St Paul lists many things that we think might separate us: anguish, distress, persecution, death. But through all these things, we still have the love of God in Jesus.

Sin is the only thing that creates a barrier. The bigger the sin, the bigger the barrier. The love of Christ is still there on the other side. But no matter how big the barrier is, when we repent and ask for forgiveness, the barrier falls. Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, if that is what we truly desire.

  1. My mom used to always say, in the midst of all injustices and pain, maintain a pure heart. That is the only way to God. She was right.
