Romans 8:37-39

Author

Rob Schultze

SCRIPTURE:

ROMANS 8:37-39
37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

OBSERVATIONS:

· (CONTEXT) When Paul said, “in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loves us.” (v. 37), he is referencing the church’s sufferings (v. 18 - “our present sufferings” and v. 35 – “trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword”) and then declares three truths in light of “these things” (their present sufferings):
o verse 28 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
o Verse 31 - What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
o Verse 37 - No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
· We are conquerors not through what we do but through Jesus who loves us.
· And finally he answers his question in v. 35 “who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” by declaring “nothing in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (v. 39)

APPLICATION:

· Whatever challenges, circumstances or sufferings we may encounter as God’s church we have Paul’s exhortation that we are victorious because of God’s love for us demonstrated in the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus

PRAYER:

· Father, thank you for the promise that nothing… absolutely nothing in all of creation can separate us from you and your love. May your church cling to this promise in the face of all kinds of persecution, sufferings and even death through martyrdom can separate us from our forever standing as your beloved sons and daughters.
