‘We Know’

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

(Romans 8:28, read the chapter)

If Holy Scripture was a ring and the Epistle to the Romans its precious stone, chapter 8 would be the sparkling point of the radiant gem. Reading this chapter, I see several things that we who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ know.

1. We know that there is now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus (v. 1). Beloved, if we are in Christ, vitally, joined to Him by faith, we are free from all condemnation. Do not allow Satan to deceive you. If you are in Christ all your sins are under the blood! Right now, we are free!

2. We know that all of God’s children have the Spirit of God (v. 14). ‘If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.’ The Holy Spirit is in us as the Spirit of life, adoption, comfort, guidance and prayer.

3. We know that there is a better day coming (v. 18). Today this earth is under the curse of sin. This world is a place of suffering, a vale of tears. But soon our Lord will create all things new. In that day, His glory will be revealed in us.

4. We know that all things work together for the eternal good of God’s elect (v.28). All things that take place upon this earth come to pass according to God’s eternal purpose for the good of His people.

5. We know that every believer is perfectly and completely saved in Christ (vv. 29-30). There is nothing lacking, nothing left undone. Christ has done all. In our Representative we are loved with a perfect love, accepted, justified, called and glorified. God saves sinners in a way that causes His Son to get the glory. He is the Firstborn among many brethren.

6. And we know that nothing shall ever separate us from the love of Christ (vv. 35-39). Come what may, I stand convinced, He will never cease to love His own.

How can we be so sure of these things? Because God gave His Son, we know He will with Him, freely give us all things. ‘What shall we then say to these things?’ I'll say this: ‘If God be for us, who can be against us?’ And I’ll say this also: “To God be the glory, great things He hath done!’ [AMEN.]
