Have you ever felt uncertain that your faith is strong enough to endure? Have you wondered whether your trials indicate that God’s love has limits? Preaching from Romans 8, Alistair Begg encourages us to face such doubts by remembering that our security rests entirely on the blood of Christ, not on our own merit. Hope based on the finished work of our victorious, living Savior can face accusation, suffering, and even death with confidence.
33Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. 34Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.10 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
