Nothing Can Separate Us From God's Love

35 Who will separate us from the Messiah's love? Can trouble, distress, persecution, hunger, nakedness, danger, or a violent death do this? 36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being put to death all day long. We are thought of as sheep headed for slaughter." 37 In all these things we are triumphantly victorious due to the one who loved us.
