encouragement side

"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?"

- Romans 8:31

This verse is often misused, but it should be a great encouragement to all believers when correctly applied. We have a faith that does not flatter the rich, famous, or highly educated. We have a faith that is not politically correct nor offers a license for sin. We have a faith whose foundation was laid by poor fishermen without wealth, power, or prestige. We have a faith that is not inclusive or agreeable with other faiths. We have a faith in which the weak prove strong, and the strong prove weak. How can this be? How has the true church survived over the centuries? Why will there always be a remnant when the odds are so overwhelming and the opposition so great? The answer is clear. “If God is for us, who is against us?” It is because “in all these things, we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.” Be encouraged!
