If God Is For Us

Photo credit: lightstock.com What can we say about all of this? If God is for us, who can be against us? God didn’t spare his own Son but handed him over ⌊to death⌋ for all of us. So he will also give us everything along with him.

Who will accuse those whom God has chosen? God has approved of them. Who will condemn them? Christ has died, and more importantly, he was brought back to life.

Christ has the highest position in heaven. Christ also intercedes for us. (‭Romans‬ ‭3:‭31-34‬ GW)

This summarizes a few chapters of detailed doctrine on the grace of God. The short of it is this—God has got it all covered for those who trust in Jesus.

God held nothing back to secure the believer's access to full forgiveness, life transformation, and eternal life. He gave His Son Jesus, whose life, death, resurrection, and ascension to heaven guarantees all of this for us who believe.

There's no catch, but there is a requirement. All of these blessings and promises require a genuine, personal relationship with God through trusting in His Son and His work of redemption on the cross. This is known by a believer living a life led by the Holy Spirit's indwelling presence and power.

This is why no one can stand against us, accuse us, or condemn us. They would have to get past the Son and the Spirit who intercede on our behalf. Jesus has gone before us into heaven, and the Holy Spirit continues with us—dwelling in us and empowering us to live a changed life.

So, when it seems you are being opposed, accused, or condemned, if you trust in Jesus, rest assured—God's got it all covered. ©Word-Strong_2016
