People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:39


Ro 8:39 Nor height, nor depth. Perhaps, the things which exalt us and the things which cast us down. Things high and things low. Nor any other creature. Any other created thing. Shall be able to separate us. None of these, "I am persuaded" (Ro 8:38), shall have power enough to tear us away from Christ, by causing us to apostatize. The love of God, which is in Christ. God's great love for us is all shown through Christ. Nowhere has Paul shown more exultation, more overflowing emotion, than in this close of a profound argument, which shows the complete and full salvation of those who believe upon Christ and are found in him.

    What a wonderful promise we have, from our creator! God the Father, Son n Holy Ghost, that in all thing we can overcome our trials n temptation, be it sicknesses, family, job or whatever is troubling you. We can beat this through God who loves us. Just have faith in him who loves you
  • Rhona Livingstone
    You know this verse is so appropriate all the time but today its so significant. It has brought back to memory how we are not to stress ourselves. Why? As it plainly states in all these things. What things? Everything the good the bad the disappointments, in friends and family we have to take a step back and ponder on the word. Even in those situations when the enemy comes to take away your hopes and joy that we are strong in God and He has our backs and we can conquer all things, but only with His help. Sometimes its hard to do so but we cannot give up or give in. We are strong and created in His image and we are conquerors in Jesus name. The most High God. Amen? So be strong and stay strong through it all. We are winners.

    Steve and Jeff (cont.); What can be the most frustrating for those who really want to help and guide the other back to soundness and health in the LORD; is that they tend to build a hard shell like a turtle and hide from every one who wants to talk sensibly to them. Then also you have others scrutinizing YOUR motives and words, instead of rather supporting the rescue efforts of the erring brother.
