God’s Love for Us

[31] What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 
[32] He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 
[33] Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. 
[34] Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who
indeed is interceding for us. [35] Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or 
persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
[36] As it is written,

	“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
		we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

[37] No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
[38] For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 
[39] nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ 
Jesus our Lord.  He promises to give all things the He justified us making us clean. 

(Romans 8:31-39 ESV)

This is most favorite passage in the in Bible.  Paul is answering the passage before this passage. 
He says, If God is for us who can be against us?  Then he goes to cross where Christ died for us making us perfect in his 
Father's sight!  Jesus is sitting next his father interceding for us all.  Nothing in all creation can separating from his
love!!! Neither can guns, disease, torture, nor pain, famine from his love!!!  This proves how good we are or much money 
we are have or important we are. 

The book of Micah God tells us how to live.

	[8] He has told you, O man, what is good;
	and what does the LORD require of you
	but to do justice, and to love kindness,
        and to walk humbly with your God?

(Micah 6:8 ESV)

    Paul,

    I frequently quote from these Romans 8 verses for the hospice patients I serve. Here is solid ground. I am glad and not surprised that these verses nourish your soul too.

    Blessings,

    Dick
