Questions to Consider

Romans 8:31-39 urges us to lay down the belief that anything or anyone could ever be able to take away the love of God from us after it was so lavishly displayed on the cross.  Yet, we still feel condemned, separate, and fearful.  Where in your life are you allowing someone or something waver in your understanding of God's love for you?
