|Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?| (Rom. viii.35).
And then comes the triumphant answer, after all the possible obstacles and enemies have been mentioned one by one, |Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors, through Him that loved us.| Our trials will be turned to helps; our enemies will be taken prisoners and made to fight our battles. Like the weights on yonder clock, which keep it going, our very difficulties will prove incentives to faith and prayer, and occasions for God becoming more real to us.
We shall get out of our troubles not only deliverance but triumph, and in all these things be even more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
Our security depends not upon our unchanging love, but on the love of God in Christ Jesus toward us. It is not the clinging arms of the babe on the mother's breast that keep it from falling, but the strong arms of the mother about it which will never let it go. He has loved us with an everlasting love, and although all else may change, yet He will never leave us nor forsake us.
