Do you have a list of reasons in your mind why you think God is not FOR you? Well, God has his own list of reasons to prove He IS for you found in Romans chapter 8. That is right where Hawk Nelson’s song, “Drops In The Ocean,” leads us this week. Along with a sneak peek at one of the disciples of Christ.
God’s Word is an adventure! Accept the challenge of the quest for understanding!
On this episode I discuss:
- Why my daughter, Emily, picked this song for the podcast
- Story behind the song video
- Where in the Word it tells us that God is FOR us (like the lyrics say) – Romans 8:31
- Using our curiosity to send us to explore the context (verses before and after) around a verse you are studying
- Thinking critically about what we are reading and giving ourselves mental margin to process what we are learning
- The “wonderful things” Paul is talking about as his justification of his statement that God is for us – Romans 8:18-30
- Who can be against us? NO ONE! – Romans 8:31-34
- A sneak peek at the Apostle Thomas and a new insight as to why he asked to see Jesus’ hands and side – John 20:19-23
- Christ’s response to Thomas and to us – John 20:26-29
