Is God for Me?

These verses mark the climax of the first eight chapters of Romans. In this chapter, having stated the gospel plainly (with justification by faith alone at the center), Paul applies the gospel to the Christian life. True believers are no longer condemned (8:1) and have every reason to persevere through suffering (8:18, 28). This perseverance to the end is guaranteed. Critics from without will not have the final say (8:31–34), nor will the critic from within—the Christian, tempted to give up amid life’s trials (8:35–39). The God who saves is the God who preserves our faith.
