Questions Asked, Questions Answered

Preacher: Jeff Fitzgerald Series: Stand Alone Topic: God's Love Scripture: Romans 8:31–39

Text: Romans 8:31-39

What then shall we say to these things?

  • Our Justification, sanctification, and our glorification is tied back to “No condemnation.”
  • “Nothing” – What can we say?
  • “Everything” – We should be in continuous praise and live for Christ.

 

If God is for us, who can be against us?

  • “If” God is for us?
  • This can mean “Since” or “Because”
  • Psalm 118:6 “…What can man do to me?”

 

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?

  • Paul is providing evidence
  • God’s “own” Son shows sacrifice.

 

Who shall bring any charge against God’s electIt is God who justifies.

  • Brings us to a court setting – Who brings a charge/ Who accuses?
  • Accusations, though may be true, will not stand which would cause our justification to be reversed.

 

Who is to condemn?

  • Is not saying, No one will condemn, or even that the condemnation would not be deserved.
  • God justifies us due to what Jesus did FOR us (crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and intercession of Christ) 

 

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

  • Nothing/No one can ever separate us from the love of Christ.  
  • We are called to be “More” than conquerors.
