As if the love couldn’t get any better.
We looked at Romans 8:31-39 today in church. Wow.
This is what our Vicar told us about God.
1. He’s on our side.
2. He gave us Jesus.
3. He chose me.
4. He died and rose and intercedes for me.
5. He loves me.
Nothing can frustrate his purposes, and Paul throws out some challenging questions to echo around the universe and, by the lack of response, prove whose really in charge of this world.
Some questions: If God is on our side who can be against us? If God gave us Jesus what will he not give us? Because Jesus has chosen us who can bring any charge against us? Because Jesus died to take our punishment who can condemn us? And finally who or what can separate us from God’s love? The world remains silent nothing or no-one remains the answer to each of these questions. Whatever happens. Whatever rubbish this world throws at us, whatever suffering we go through, however dark it gets. God remains who he is, on our side, giving us everything and we can never escape his love for us. Feast on that for a bit.
