What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)
Thank you for being for us, Father. Please help us keep our eyes fixed on you.
He who did not spare his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32)
Holy Spirit, enlarge our expectation of what our Father will do for us.
Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. (Romans 8:33)
Holy Trinity, one God, thank you for doing what we cannot: justifying us sinners.
Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. (Romans 8:34)
Father, thank you: for now there is no condemnation for we are in Christ Jesus. (See Romans 8:1)
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (Romans 8:35)
Jesus, thank you that through all these things we can be more than conquerors because you love us. I too “am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 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.” (See Romans 8:38-39)
A word received: Keep at it: encourage one another in listening to me.
