Title: If God is with us who can be against us?
(Romans 8:31-39) What, then, shall we say in response to these things?If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died more than that, who was raised to life is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
If God is with us , who can be against us? Nobody,if He can give His only begotten son to die for us , what is it that He cannot do for us. God is able to save us no matter what. If He gave His only son for us He is not going to hold back the gift of salvation from us. If Jesus have given His life for us, why will He come back and condemn us ? He will release to us everything we need to make it in this life.
(Vs 34) Paul says that Jesus is interceding for us in heaven.
God has acquitted us and has removed our sins and guilt, so it is Satan not God who accuses us. When he does, Jesus our advocate, sits at God’s right hand to present our case. (Hebrews 4:14-16) Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,Jesus the Son of God,let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Believers have always had to face hardship in many ways. They suffer persecution, illness, imprisonments, and even death. These problems make them to fear they have been abandoned by Christ. But Paul exclaims that it is impossible to be separated from the love of Christ. His death for us proves His unquestionable, and unconditional love. Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, His love is constantly present with us. God assured us of His great love so that we will feel totally secured in Him. If we believe these amazing assurances, we will not be afraid of anything. Amen!!
Prayers: Thank you Lord, God Almighty. Help me Lord not to be afraid. Thank you Lord for sending your only son to die for me. Thank you Lord for that wonderful sacrifice. Nothing shall separate me from your love forever and ever. Thank you Jesus. Thank you father for interceding for me before our Heavenly Father. .
