πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Who Can Be Against Us?

We have shown in a previous article that God is for sinners and desires their good. We have shown how He proved this by paying for their sins Himself as God the Son at Calvary. But if this is true, how much more must it be so with regard to His own children who have trusted Christ as their Savior?

How often β€” and how significantly β€” the Apostle Paul uses the words β€œfor us” in this connection!

In Eph. 5:2 we read that β€œChrist… loved us, and hath given Himself for us.” In Rom. 5:8 we are told that β€œwhile we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” In II Cor. 5:21: β€œ[God] hath made Him to be sin for us.” And in Gal. 3:13 we read: β€œChrist hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.”

And the love that brought Him down from heaven to die in shame and disgrace for our sins is not affected by our many failures as Christians now. In Heb. 9:24 we read that our Lord has ascended to heaven β€œnow to appear in the presence of God for us.” In Rom. 8:34 we learn that He is β€œat the right hand of God” to β€œmake intercession for us.” And in Heb. 7:25 we read that He is able to save us β€œto the uttermost” because β€œHe ever lives to make intercession for us.”

Our failures now, after having trusted Christ as Savior, may β€” and should β€” trouble our consciences and thus hinder our fellowship with God, but this does not change the fact that we are God’s dear children through faith in Christ, who died for all our sins. Unworthy though we still may be, therefore, God would have us come into His presence to be spiritually renewed.

β€œWhat shall we then say to these things? IF GOD BE FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?” (Rom. 8:31).
