The following is the twenty-first weekâ€™s lesson.Â In this section, Paul closes with final words of triumph and joy. No suffering can prove that God does not love us. Nothing in all creation can separate us from Godâ€™s love.
Romans 8:26Â Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27Â Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28Â And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29Â For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Â Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
31Â What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32Â 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? 33Â Who shall bring a charge against Godâ€™s elect? It is God who justifies. 34Â Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35Â Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36Â As it is written:
â€œFor Your sake we are killed all day long;Â We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.â€
37Â Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38Â For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39Â nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
In this beautiful section of Scripture, Paul makes it clear in a number of ways that nothing will separate us from Godâ€™s love in Christ.
