Giving Us All Things

What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us?  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 

Romans 8:31-32

After receiving these encouraging words in verse 31: “If God be for us, who can be against us?,” we find even more encouragement in the next verse.  In verse 32, we find just how much God loves us, just how much He has done for us, and just how much He is willing to do for us.

“He that spared not his own Son…”  God gave His own Son, Jesus, for us.  He sent Him to die on a cross, rejected and alone.  God the Father turned His back on His own Son Who became sin for us.  There are very few earthly fathers who would send their sons to die an agonizing death to save anyone, and for good reason.  Fathers love their sons.  God the Father loves Jesus.  But He “…spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all…”  That shows us how much God loves us.

The verse then goes on to ask us a question: “…how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”  The question is this: if God is willing to give up His beloved Son Jesus for us, what is there that He is not willing to give us?  Sometimes we wonder if God is willing to help us or to give us something.  We need not wonder.  The answer to this question is that God would obviously “freely give us all things.”  Especially when we look at what He has already given us.

We can be encouraged by that every day of our lives and we can claim that promise every time we pray.  What a wonderful Saviour!
