Entirely For Us

I listened to a sermon this morning by John Piper on Romans 8:28-32, and once again God helped me understand clearly that he is "entirely for us":
There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). God is entirely for us, and never against us. None of our sicknesses is a judgment from a condemning judge. None of our broken cars or failed appliances is a punishment from God. None of our marital strife is a sign of his wrath. None of our lost jobs is a penalty for sin. None of our wayward children is a crack of the whip of God’s retribution. If we are in Christ. No. God is for us, not against, in and through all things – all ease and all pain.

What a blessing! If God is for us, who can ultimately prevail against us?!?!

Enjoying God,
