[Romans 8:35a, 38-39, NKJV]
Past the lists of do's and donts and the rules and regulations lie a relationship with God that has its roots in an intimate knowledge of Gods love for us and the understanding of His worth and faithfulness, that's the kind of relationship the passage today talks about. One that is not fazed by what stays or what goes, one that is not shaken by what did or did not happen, one that is fueled by the understanding of God's faithfulness in this grand scheme called our lives.
Let us seek to know Him in this manner and pray as Paul did for the Ephesians, that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith, that we being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend what is the width and length and depth and height, to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that we may be filled with all the fullness of God.
