Romans 8:31-38 ~ The Message Bible
So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way!
It has been said that if a person has a handful of true friends in their lifetime that they are the most fortunate. We who know Christ truly have the very best situation of all. We have the Creator of the universe, the all loving, all powerful heavenly Father as our true friend. He loved us sacrificially when He sent His Son to take our place at the cross. What a sacrifice, what a price that was paid for us! He gave His all to have us in relationship with Him.
As we draw closer to the resurrection season, reflect on what Jesus bought back for us in his death and resurrection. Our lips should always be filled with praise and thanks! We can now run right into the presence of our Heavenly Father whenever we need Him. Oh, to God be the glory!
