New King James Version (NKJV)
God’s Everlasting Love
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Volume is the amount of space that a substance or object occupies, or that is enclosed within a container. It is the measure of the amount of a substance that can be held within the space that an object occupies. How can we measure the volume of love? Is it diminished in any way when it’s spread out over time and space, or even mere distance? Does a parent’s love wane for their child if that child goes off to school or moves to another city? No, far from it. In fact it grows even greater. How great then is the Love of God for us whether we are close or far?
Thank You for loving us. You are always with us despite what we think or that might seem true at the time. You are always here. You never abandon us. Never. What an awesome gift! What a pleasure it is to open our eyes and see You in every corner, every moment, every situation of our lives. May we all hear You knock, come to the door, and invite You in.
