Romans 8:35, 37: “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”

Nothing can separate us from God, with one exception: we can. Our little ego has that power and is instrumental to separation from God. We know that nobody is born selfless. We all come with an ego. Our ego is a tricky monster.  Try to negate it, and it rears its ugly head anyway. Try as you may, ego’s always in the way!

If that’s the case, what hope do we have to get connected to God? Never despair my friend! God has means to overcome obstacles even as big as the human ego, extraordinary means! Wouldn’t you think that splitting the Trinity and sending the Son of God to Earth is a very surprising way to save the world? I certainly think so.

The important message that we should internalize is that God is always here, in good times and bad. He is literally everywhere, and He is constantly reaching out. It’s up to us to take His hand.

“Won’t you look down upon me, Jesus,
You’ve got to help me make a stand.
You’ve just got to see me through another day.
My body’s aching and my time is at hand
And I won’t make it any other way.”                         James Taylor
