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).
