God is for us
Threats against us
Main point summary
Arc
God is for us
We all live under threats—from what is and what could be. Will our freedoms be suppressed and prison become the lot of those who stand for God's word? Will cancer strike more people in my family? Will I find a job before all the money runs out? Will I be cut off from the blessing of God? The threats are real and their bite painful indeed, but they are never God acting against us if we are in Christ. In Christ! In him. Are there more beautiful words in all the world? Is God against his Son? Then God is not against those in him. Will the Sovereign Lord allow threats to win the day and have their way with Jesus, and those who belong to him? Yes, they will bite, and perhaps even swallow us as the grave swallowed Christ. But they will never defeat us. They will strike us and knock us to the ground, but we will rise with the resurrection power of the Son of Man. They may in fact win the day, but not the third. If God is for us—and in Christ, he is for us—then all that is against us is futile fists destined for frustration when aimed at those covered in the love of God!
