Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:31


8:31 What shall we say then to these things - Related in the third, fifth, and eighth chapters? As if he had said, We cannot go, think, or wish anything farther. If God be for us - Here follow four periods, one general and three particular. Each begins with glorying in the grace of God, which is followed by a question suitable to it, challenging all opponents to all which, I am persuaded, &c., is a general answer. The general period is, If God be for us, who can be against us? The first particular period, relating to the past time, is, He that spared not his own Son, how shall he not freely give us all things? The second, relating to the present, is, It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? The third, relating to the future, is, It is Christ that died - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

    1-4 "that the requirement of the law should be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to flesh, but according to Spirit." Demonstrating by the Spirit; the signs which Jesus did in the sight of the children of Israel, were for bringing them to the knowledge of the truth, and fulfilling God's promise of salvation. So too in us, by His Spirit; that God's goodness should praise Him in our new life.

    Paul tells us that speaking in another language is good if it is used to communicate the Good News. He says it is better to speak in the language that edifies, builds up the body of Christ. If one comes and all are speaking differently, they'll say you are mad, crazy.
