Theme
God’s promises
are constantly experienced
through His amazing
acts of love.
Felt a
Little
Pressure
In Your
Life
Lately?
Has the unexpected got
You worried about your future?
Has your past
started to
catch
up with you?
Anxious?
Do you find it hard to trust God
when circumstances distract you?
1. God Promises To Get Us
Through Stuff Because…
He Loves Us and
Our Inheritance Proves It.
17 …we are heirs--heirs of God and coheirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his
sufferings in order that we may also share
in his glory.
18 I consider that our present sufferings
are not worth comparing with the glory
that will be revealed in us.
2a. God Promises An Incredible
Future Because…
He loves us and our
transformation proves it
19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the
sons of God to be revealed.
20 …creation was subjected to frustration…
21 …creation itself will be liberated from its
bondage to decay…
2b. God Promises An Incredible
Future Because…
He loves us and our
transformation proves it
22 …the whole creation has been groaning
23 …we ourselves, who have the firstfruits
of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait
eagerly for our adoption as sons, the
redemption of our bodies.
24 …we wait for it patiently.
3. God Promises That He Will
Hear Us Because…
He loves us and His Always
Active Spirit In Us Proves It
26 …The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do
not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit
himself intercedes for us with groans that words
cannot express.
27 And he who searches our hearts knows the
mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for
the saints in accordance with God’s will.
4. God Promises That Things Will
Work Out For The Best Because…
He loves us and Has A Purpose and
Plan for Each of Us That Proves It
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of
those who love him, who have been called according to his
purpose.
29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be
conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the
firstborn among many brothers.
30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he
called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
5a. God Promises That He Will Defend Us
When Under Attack Because…
He loves us and Jesus Constantly
Defending Us Proves It
31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is
for us, who can be against us?
32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for
us all--how will he not also, along with him, graciously give
us all things?
34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died-more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand
of God and is also interceding for us.
5b. God Promises That He Will Defend Us
When Under Attack Because…
He loves us and Jesus Constantly
Defending Us Proves It
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine
or nakedness or danger or sword?
36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all
day long; we are considered as sheep to be
slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than
conquerors through him who loved us.
Summary:
God’s Love Is Invincible!
(verses 38,39)
For I am convinced that…
1. Neither death nor life,
If I am “dead” I will still
experience His love,
“Life” never
gets in the
way of His love
2. Neither angels
nor demons
Angels can’t get
between me and His
love and neither can
demons
3. Neither the present
nor the future
Nothing in the past will do it and
neither will the stuff in the future
4. Nor any powers
IRS
NSA
CIA
MI6
KKK
FBI
AFL-CIO
CDC
ACLU
NEA
UN
or the GOP
5. Neither
height nor
depth
One million light
years away or
the inside of an
atom
6. Nor anything else
in all creation
Nor any created thing will be able to
separate us from the love of God that
is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Nothing can put up a barrier that can
keep us from experiencing God’s
Unconditional love.
IF you are in HIM.
Our Challenge…
Accept His Love.
Trust His Love.
Experience His Love.
