Rom 8:37 But in all these things we more than conquer through Him who loved us. (39) Nor height nor depth nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
This phrase "in Christ Jesus" is very significant. Why did Paul say this? Because he knew that there would be a problem if the love of God had been shown apart from Christ Jesus. Apart from Christ Jesus even a little sin such as losing our temper would separate us from the love of God. However, the love of God is not merely the love of God in itself, but the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. Since the love of God is in Christ Jesus, everything is insured, and we are assured that nothing can separate us from it. Are you insured? Paul was. I use the word insured; Paul uses the word "persuaded" saying, "I am persuaded." Paul was convinced that in all things "we more than conquer through Him Who loved us." This does not mean that we in ourselves are able to overcome; it means that God is love and that Christ is victor. God loves us and Christ has accomplished everything for us. Since God's love is eternal, His love in Christ Jesus is our security. This is our eternal insurance policy. Now you know how to answer people when they ask you if you have insurance. You can say, "I have insurance. My insurance policy is Romans 8:31-39. I am insured by the love in God's heart." We are insured by God's eternal love in Christ Jesus.
