In life or in death, this One’s for you

From Romans 8: “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? . . . Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship . . .

Or persecution or famine . . .

Or nakedness or danger or sword?

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death . . .

Nor life . . .

Neither angels nor demons, Neither the present nor the future,

Nor any powers, Neither 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.”

Grab the promise of Romans 8 today. It’s for you!
