Nothing Can Stop Life

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Romans 8:31–39.

What, then, are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He did not even spare his own Son but gave him up for us all. How will he not also with him grant us everything? Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies. Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is the one who died, but even more, has been raised; he also is at the right hand of God and intercedes for us. Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

Because of you
we are being put to death all day long;
we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

How does what you learned throughout the week inform what this passage says about your new life in the Spirit?

The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.

FOCUS:

How do you see the life of the Spirit manifested in your local church? How do you see the Holy Spirit’s work in the global church?

PRAY:

Lord, grant my siblings in Christ in this city, in the United States, and around the world an increased awareness of your Spirit’s abiding presence in them and of his work through them.
