Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Ever feel like you're not much of a Christian? "Surely, if I'm a Christian, it would feel different than this....more Christian!" Doubts creep in? Of course they do. Read the words below carefully, thoughtfully.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus Christ our Lord.
- Romans 8:37-39 TNIV

As we've read through these recent words in Romans 8, discipleship clearly is a bit of a turmoil. The pull and push of faithfulness wrestling with the lapse into sin and willfully, rebellious ways. But re-read those words above. Consider the scope, the breadth of the topics. Covers everything, doesn't it?

Christ's hand grasps you and will not let you go. You are securely connected.
