Who or What

Twice in Romans eight it forges the idea that nothing can separate us from the love of God. The two lists represent both who and what of the idea of those things that could potentially separate us from that love. Within the context of our very constitutionally protected American lifestyle, most of those things appear very distant, even insular.

Yet within those same verses (28-39) is the overwhelming force that conquers the who and what of those influences; the gift of the love of God’s son.

“If God has determined to stand with us, tell me, who (or what) then could ever stand against us? (vs. 31, TPT)

 “Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!” (vs. 37)

Also see Eph. 3:14-21, Phil. 1:6-11
