Romans 8:35, 37

Romans 8:35, 37

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Reflection:

No matter who we are– gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or asexual… nothing on this Earth can separate us from the love Christ has for us. And no trial or tribulation we may face as members of the LGBT community could prevent Christ from loving us or caring about us or answering our prayers.  Through God, all things are possible. Through Christ, all things are possible.

Christ sacrificed himself so that we may have everlasting life. Christ sacrificed himself for the forgiveness of all sins from our past, our present, and our future. Whatever we may be facing in this life, Jesus has our backs! Jesus and all that he represents supports us in our struggles to live in harmony with each other. Jesus stood for equality, peace, social justice, love, compassion, kindness towards others, and the forgiveness of others. And because he cared enough about the well-being of humanity, we can be assured that no matter what we face, he will continue to love us and care about us as we strive and struggle to be better people, caring people, more honest and sincere people, and more loving and forgiving people.
