A sermon from Romans 8.
Throughout all of Romans 8, we’re given an expansive view of the gospel. From beginning to end, from verse 1 to 39, it’s all of grace — incandescent grace that fuels our “No Condemnation” and inexhaustible grace, still, that fuels our “No Separation.”
I encourage you to read Romans 8:17–27, as that’s the basis of what’s to follow. Also, if you’ve read some of my past devotionals, where I’ve desired to unpack the rich and glorious contents of Romans 8, you’ll remember that we who claim Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior are His eternally.
Romans 8 is one passage of Scripture that seems inescapable for me, of late. Perhaps it’s the wonder and beauty of the apostle’s words that build and build, forming a wonderful crescendo that culminates in verses 35–39.
It’s true that all Scripture is “God-breathed.” Every line of the Bible is a manifestation of the mind of God, and is there to give us a glimpse of who He really is. Every word is “profitable” and infused with divine beauty. But sometimes the beauty transcends from the heavenly down to even the mere literary level.
