Taste and See: God for us, and with us…

Christ, GillinghamThe second reading on Sunday, the 2nd Sunday of Lent came from St Paul’s letter to the Romans.

With God on our side who can be against us? Since God did not spare his own Son, but gave him up to benefit us all, we may be certain, after such a gift, that he will not refuse anything he can give. Could anyone accuse those that God has chosen? When God acquits, could anyone condemn? Could Christ Jesus? No! He not only died for us – he rose from the dead, and there at God’s right hand he stands and pleads for us.

Romans 8:31-34

In Lent we recall the suffering of Christ, but in the wake of Sunday’s Gospel, we do so mindful of his rising from the dead also, and of the meaning of that rising for us also.

With God on our side, for whom can we be advocates?

  1. Met God aan onze zijde wie zal tegen ons zijn? Omdat God zijn eigen Zoon niet gespaard heeft, maar heeft Hem voor ons ten goede aan alle, kunnen we er zeker van zijn, na zo’n geschenk, dat hij niet alles wat hij kan geven zal weigeren. Kan iemand beschuldigen degenen die God heeft gekozen? Toen God vrijgesproken, kan iemand veroordelen? Kon Jezus Christus? Nee! Hij heeft niet alleen stierf voor ons – hij stond op uit de doden, en er aan Gods rechterhand, hij staat en pleit voor ons.Amen ❤
