Romans 8:31-39

31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS

Q: Do you believe in Jesus, but fear your hidden thoughts and feelings are keeping you separated from Him? Have you experienced things that you think He can’t love you for? Do you feel shame? Embarrassment? Disgrace? Guilt? Are those things that you try and keep “at bay” because you know when they come to light, they will be destructive?

Q: What do these verses say with will separate us from Christ? What things do you need to confront and bring to Christ in order to diffuse them before they affect your life any longer? Will you accept the “overwhelming victory that is yours through Christ?”
