It is an absolute necessity that we allow Scripture to inform our thinking and emotions. The world has been so badly deceived, that any thought of God being greater than everything is outside any of their thinking. It is no wonder the world is in chaos and people live in fear and uncertainty.
The Bible alone gives us an anchor for our souls, minds and hearts. As Paul very carefully explains the gospel in Romans, chapters 1 to 8, he comes to a conclusion that reminds us of how awesome God is. Paul starts his conclusion by asking two questions; “What then shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). How would you answer?
The tremendous impact of God’s grace in the gospel, particularly outlined in chapters 3 to 8 prove that salvation of the soul from eternal loss does not come from anything we have done. Eternal life is a gift of God (3:24; 5:15-17). We are justified (made righteous before God) by grace through faith (3:24-30; 5:1). As a result of this act of God, we have peace with Him (5:1) and are now reconciled (5:11) into a personal relationship as His sons (8:14).
Now, how would you answer Paul’s questions above? There is nothing we can do in payment, except to REST in Christ (Hebrews 4:11) and offer praise from our lips and lives (13:15). Stand therefore in this security knowing that nothing can separate us from God’s love (Romans 8:37-39).
