Read the New Testament in a year, one chapter a day, five days a week

Day 60/260: Read Romans 8

Whose side are you on? If you are on God’s side, you’re on the winning side. It doesn’t matter what happens in this life, if you are with God, you will be victorious.

How does one choose to be on God’s side? We must align ourselves with Jesus, obey the gospel so that He will add us to His church. Those who are in Christ, walking according to the Spirit, will be justified, not condemned, when all is said and done. Isn’t that a great blessing?

Romans 8:28 reveals a great promise to God’s followers as well. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

Does that say that everything will be good? No, but everything—good and bad—will work together for good. We will face troubles, we will be persecuted, we will struggle, but if we love God and are among the called, it will be all right. God is using your situation for good.

God will never stop loving you. Nothing can separate His children from His love. We have the freedom to leave Him at any time, but why would we? All of the blessings and promises available in Christ, it would be foolish to walk away. “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”

Memory (Recite to a friend without looking)

Romans 6:3. Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?


Pray a prayer of thanksgiving for the love of God.
