For the most part, life is filled with uncertainties. We can only be confident of a few things in this world. Paul ends this powerful section of Romans with a comforting list of promises that believers can embrace in good times and in bad. We can be confident that God has no worthy opponent. We can be confident that our imputed righteousness precludes any legitimate accusations against our souls. We can be confident that Christ’s sacrifice has earned us an irreversible verdict of innocence. We can be confident that no one and no thing has the ability to cause God to stop loving us.
We can be certain of these most important things. And suddenly the things we cannot be certain of don’t seem important any more.
