He will not call us home until He's done. That means that I can go and be used by God in some of the craziest places on the planet and I can be just as safe there as I am anywhere because nothing can happen to us as long as God has His arms around us.
Paul's point in Romans 8 Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
Not saying that we wont go through difficulties or sickness, but we're good until God says your done.
We can live with confidence. True life doesn't begin until Jesus comes back. We can be what God intends us to be, go where He wants us to go.
John 8: 12-30
