My sheep hear My voice,
and I know them,
and they follow Me;
and I give eternal life to them,
and they shall never perish;
and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall tribulation, or distress,
or persecution, or famine,
or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Just as it is written,
'For Thy sake we are being put to death all day long;
We are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.'
But in all these things
we overwhelmingly conquer
through Him Who loved us.
For I am convinced that
neither death nor life,
nor angels nor principalities,
nor things present nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor any other created thing,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For I am confident of this very thing,
that He who began a good work in you
will perfect it
until the day of Christ Jesus.
He is able to save forever
those who draw near to God through Him,
Since He always lives
to make intercession above the heavens.
