How many of us have really ever given our best? I ask the question to help us realize that when God gave His Son, He gave His best. This means God emptied heaven of its richness; God had nothing more worth giving. In that moment of giving he did not give something that was better than the rest by comparison, but something that included all. Paul understood that when God gave us His Son, with Him, “He … graciously gives us all things” (8:32). The logic is clear, when God gave us His Son, with Him He freely gives us all things.
With this understanding look again at the questions Paul asks in Romans 8: Who can be against us? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? “Who is he that condemns?” “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?”
Aren’t these the questions we ask today? Yes! And these are the answers to those questions: How do I know God is for me? He sent His son. Who can be against us? No one because of Christ’s Cross. Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? No one for Christ justifies. Who is he that condemns? No one, for Christ died for me. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Not death, nor life, not angels or demons, not the present or the future, not any power, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation.
Secure in Him,
