Call to Worship: Devotional (By Pastor Dan Loch)

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. 35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written,

“For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;

We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:31-39

How important is the resurrection? How much of Christianity depends on Mary finding an empty tomb? If Christ was not raised then we can disregard everything we just read in verses 31-39. If, somewhere out there, the bones of a “good teacher” are turning to dust then distress, famine, death, and powers could easily certainly separate us from the love of God. But hallelujah! Christ is risen and He is bringing us into His kingdom. If He is for us then who can stand against us? With this in mind, boldly proclaim the Gospel knowing that you are sustained by the One who conquers sin and death.
