5-5-15 The Love of God

stars01

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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

Of all of the uncertainties of life,

And there is nothing certain, not but one:

The love of God, through peace and change and strife,

Is absolutely true and not undone.

Not life or death will kill His love at all,

Nor angels, kings or principalities,

No power in the universe at all

Can stop His love in time or in degrees.

Not heaven, earth or hell can end God’s love,

No creature in the sky or earth below.

It’s easier to count the stars above

Than find one thing His love can’t overthrow.

The love of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Is undeniable across the board.

If you get more excited for a sport,

A TV show, your business or a band,

Then how in all the world can you purport

To say you love the Lord and take that stand?

If you are saved you ought to think that way;

The Christian mind is fixed to serve the Lord.

Don’t let the devil’s playground make you stray.

Remember why you’re here; you won’t get bored.

There’s nothing wrong with having lots of fun,

There’s joy in many things as you well know;

Just don’t forget the shadow’s not the sun.

There’s more important things than this below.

When you get more excited loving God

You won’t go soon astray with a facade

~~~~~~~~~~~

Set your affection on things above,

not on things on the earth.

Colossians 3:2 KJV
