The Good Seed - Sunday, June 28, 2020
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Romans 8:31.32

Thoughts on the Epistle to the Romans (145)
Nothing can thwart God’s purpose for His children: eventually they will be “conformed to the image of his Son” (v. 29). What can a Christian say to that? Verse 31 poses this question, and from then on follows a series of questions and answers in rapid succession. They show how happy and calm the apostle’s heart was, since he knew God’s love and power: “God is for us”!

Sinful man imagines that God is against him. Yet in the good news of Jesus Christ we learn that God loves mankind and wishes to save him. All who have put their faith in Christ and become children of God can know that “God is for us”!

The greatest proof of this fact is undoubtedly “His indescribable gift” (2 Corinthians 9:15), the gift of His own Son, whom He sacrificed for the godless and His enemies (cf. ch. 4:5; 5:10). Every gift is included in this, His greatest gift. God withholds nothing that is good for the Christian, and all is given him in Christ.

At this point the question arises for every Christian: do I wish for anything that God cannot grant me or that I cannot enjoy in fellowship with Christ? If that is the case, then I have not properly understood God’s infinite love towards me and how happy His good gifts make me.

(to be continued next Sunday)
