God's Overwhelming Love for Us


Rom 4:25-5:3 (TLB)
{25} Jesus died for our sins 
and rose again to make us right with God,
 filling us with God's goodness.
{5:1} So now, since we have been made right in God's sight 
by faith in his promises, 
we can have real peace with him 
because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.

 {2} For because of our faith, 
he has brought us into this place of highest privilege where we now stand, 
and we confidently and joyfully look forward
 to actually becoming all that God has had in mind for us to be.

 {3} We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, 
for we know that they are good for us--
they help us learn to be patient.

Rom 5:5a-11(TLB)
{5a} for we know how dearly God loves us, 
and we feel this warm love everywhere within us
 because God has given us the Holy Spirit 
to fill our hearts with his love. 

{6} When we were utterly helpless, with no way of escape,
 Christ came at just the right time
 and died for us sinners who had no use for him. 

{7} Even if we were good, we really wouldn't expect anyone to die for us,
 though, of course, that might be barely possible. 
{8} But God showed his great love for us 
by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 

{9} And since by his blood he did all this for us as sinners, 
how much more will he do for us 
now that he has declared us not guilty? 
Now he will save us from all of God's wrath to come.

 {10} And since, when we were his enemies,
 we were brought back to God by the death of his Son, 
what blessings he must have for us now that we are his friends 
and he is living within us! 

{11} Now we rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God--
all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done in dying for our sins--
making us friends of God.

Rom 8:35-39 (TLB)
{35} Who then can ever keep Christ's love from us?
 When we have trouble or calamity, 
when we are hunted down or destroyed, 
is it because he doesn't love us anymore?

 And if we are hungry or penniless or in danger or threatened with death,
 has God deserted us?
 {36} No, for the Scriptures tell us that
 for his sake we must be ready to face death at every moment of the day--
we are like sheep awaiting slaughter; 
{37} but despite all this, overwhelming victory is ours 
through Christ who loved us enough to die for us.

 {38} For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love.
 Death can't, and life can't. 
The angels won't, 
and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God's love away.

 Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, 
{39} or where we are--high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean--
nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God 
demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.
