Lessons from Romans (these things)

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Rom 8:31)

There are two questions here; the second is a popularly quoted verse… but consider the first question – what are ‘these things’?

Let us consider some ‘things’ that come before this verse

  • No condemnation now for us (v1)
  • We are free the law of sin and death (v2)
  • We have, indwelling us, the same Spirit that raised up Jesus, and he shall revive our mortal bodies (v11)
  • We have been adopted by the Father (v15)
  • We are thus His children (v16)
  • And, therefore, joint heirs with Christ (v17)
  • Unimaginable glory is awaiting us (v18)
  • The Holy Spirit makes intercession for us (v26)
  • God is managing/working the things which occur for good (v28)

Wow! What a list to praised Him for!

Some may be opposed to us, but with God being “for” us, they cannot be against us successfully!
