There are basically two types of movies. Guy flicks and chick flicks. Guy flicks are easy to spot because they involve car chases, people getting shot and edge of your seat excitement. Chick flicks usually revolve around gals exploring new ways to express their feelings about something… anything… nothing!
The best movies find a way to combine both extreme adventure and some expression of feelings – preferably in a humorous manner; all culminating in the guy overcoming various obstacles to go back for the girl.
Scripture mentions Jesus as the Bridegroom and we – the church – as His bride. I guess that’s why Romans 8:38-39 sort of reads and feels like the end of a high-adventure outing when the guy goes back for the girl.
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 our Lord. ~ Romans 8:38-39
God overcame every obstacle, the biggest being sin, to make possible an intimate relationship with each of us. And He intends for our relationship with Him to be inseparable!
No matter what challenge or struggle comes against us this week, we can know that it won’t separate us from the love of God!
