Can you imagine giving up your own child’s life for someone else’s? Or willingly allowing your son or daughter to suffer extreme punishment for another’s crime? That is exactly what God did for us – what extravagant love! This passage also assures us that once we trust in Christ, we cannot be separated from His amazing love. Let this knowledge take deep root in your soul so that your peace will not be shaken when you face the troubles of this world.
Questions for further thought:
1. “If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” (v. 31b)
2. What do you need to be confident of God’s extravagant love for you?
