⇒ Not death: confronting death and leaving this world cannot separate us from Christ and His love (). ⇒ Not life: no trial or pleasure or comfort of life, not any person nor any thing in this life can separate us from Christ and His love. ⇒ Not angels, principalities, or powers: no heavenly or spiritual creature, no being from any other dimension can separate us from Christ and His love. ⇒ Not any thing present or any thing to come: neither present events, beings or things, nor future events, beings, or things—absolutely nothing in existence or any thing in future existence—can cut us off from Christ and His love. ⇒ Not height or depth: nothing from outer space or from the depths of the earth can separate us from Christ and His love. Note the grand finale: if there be any other creature than the ones named, that creature cannot separate us from "the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" ().
