On the steadfast love and covenant fidelity of God: Romans 8: 35 ff.

Who shall separate us from Christ's love for us? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or hunger, or nakedness, or danger, or the sword? Even as it is written: "For your sake we are put to death all the day long, we are regarded as sheep for the slaughter." But in all these things we are more than victorious, through him who has loved us. I am sure 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 creature can separate us from God's love for us, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
