Do you remember the movie, Rocky? Every time I hear the theme music from Rocky, I get pumped up. I want to hold my hands up in victory, just like Rocky.
Today, I was jogging and listening to the audio Bible in my headphones, and I felt that same feeling of euphoria as I was listening to the verses being read from Romans chapter 8! This has to be the most positive and uplifting chapter in the whole Bible! Have you read some of the key verses in this chapter? I don’t think I realized that all of these awesome verses were in the same chapter. Here are a few that are in Romans 8:
Verse 1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2
Verse 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of[e] his Spirit who lives in you.
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
WOW! Did you know all of those great verses were in one chapter of the Bible? See what I mean! It’s the most positive chapter! (If I’m wrong, and you know of a more positive chapter, let me know) But in the meantime, throw your hands up in the air, like Rocky! Woo Hoo! These are some encouraging verses to get you through today!
