Bible Commentary for Romans 8:39

Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:39


8:37 We more than conquer - We are not only no losers, but abundant gainers, by all these trials. This period seems to describe the full assurance of hope.

8:38 I am persuaded - This is inferred from the thirty - fourth verse, in an admirable order: - Neither death shall hurt us; For Christ is dead: Nor life; 'is risen Nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers; nor things pre - sent, nor things to come; is at the right hand of God: Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature; maketh intercession for us. Neither death - Terrible as it is to natural men; a violent death in particular, #Rom 8:36|. Nor life - With all the affliction and distress it can bring, #Rom 8:35|; or a long, easy life; or all living men. Nor angels - Whether good (if it were possible they should attempt it) or bad, with all their wisdom and strength. Nor principalities, nor powers - Not even those of the highest rank, or the most eminent power. Nor things present - Which may befal us during our pilgrimage; or the whole world, till it passeth away. Nor things to come - Which may occur either when our time on earth is past, or when time itself is at an end, as the final judgment, the general conflagration, the everlasting fire. Nor height, nor depth - The former sentence respected the differences of times; this, the differences of places. How many great and various things are contained in these words, we do not, need not, cannot know yet. The height - In St. Paul's sublime style, is put for heaven. The depth - For the great abyss: that is, neither the heights, I will not say of walls, mountains, seas, but, of heaven itself, can move us; nor the abyss itself, the very thought of which might astonish the boldest creature. Nor any creature - Nothing beneath the Almighty; visible enemies he does not even deign to name. Shall be able - Either by force, #Rom 8:35|; or by any legal claim, #Rom 8:33|, &c. To separate us from the love of God in Christ - Which will surely save, protect, deliver us who believe in, and through, and from, them all.


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.

    God 's love for us is in spite of not because of. No matter what we did or will do nothing can separate us from his love. However, for him to be more pleased with us we must walk in obedience to his word.

    The Love of God is a mighty strong hold !! Nothing shall be able to sever the love of God to me and for me. I can depend on that. Why ? Because God said it and that settles it and I believe His word . I cannot ask for anything better !!!!
  • Moses Njenga on Romans 8:39
    Being born again is GOD and you becoming one, so separation is impossible.
  • Olabode on Romans 8:39
    The word height is this verse means 'high level of success or achievement '. While depth means how serious a situation is. This particular verse tells us that no mather what we are passing through in this life is temporal. For example, Jesus said, in the world, we are going to face tribulations, persecutions, trials,etc. he completed it by saying, we should be of good cheer that he has overcome the world John 16 33 . So if we are going through one problem or the other, we should not let it to separate us from the love of Christ that is, we should hold on with our faith, for he is just and faithful that promise us, he will not let us down, he will see us through.
  • Jim Frick on Romans 8:39
    Its literally a life saver. God put those words into Paul to let us know his determination. We serve an AWESOME GOD. A WONDERFUL GOD. HE IS THE GREAT IAM AND EVERYTHING THAT IS MIGHTY,PURE AND HOLY.
