Has life ever sent you reeling such that it causes you to question your faith in God? Paul has this beautiful list in Romans 8 that if you’re in the middle of any of the scenarios he presents, you may feel that God’s love has “left the building.” However, Paul goes on to teach us something that Steven Curtis Chapman’s song reminds us of — not only can these scenarios never separate us from God’s love, but we are more than conquerors over them.
Join me as I consider Paul’s conclusion in light of the context of Romans 8.
