We've Got Jesus!
“What shall we then say to these things…if God be for us…who can be against us?”(Romans 8:31 KJV)
I remember playing “sandlot” football as a kid. When a game got started you wanted to make sure you arrived early around the time that the captains started picking teams, why?
1. You wanted to get picked early (never last) and…
2. You wanted to be on the team with the “stud”. Why?
Because you knew that if you had “Johnny, “the touchdown king” at QB, there was no way your team was going to lose! Johnny was the MAN; the other team knew the game was already over. It was only necessary to hike the ball and watch the carnage unfold.
In his epistle to the Romans, Paul is encouraging the new church (that’s you and me) to remember who “is on our team” so to speak!!! We have the LORD JESUS CHRIST! The King of Kings and Lord of Lords! The great I AM! The Alpha and The Omega!!!
There isn’t another “team” in or under or around the universe that can stand against Jesus! His name alone is enough! And Paul, rather than get long-winded, (like I am doing here) provides us with the ULTIMATE rhetorical question: “With GOD on my side, WHO can put a hand on me??” (my paraphrase). What a wonderful promise!? No one and No thing can stop us or harm us when God is on our side!!! Whatever it is you are facing today, whoever it is; just know that God is on your side! “It” has no chance. Satan knows; the “game” is already over. But, do you know it and do you believe it? Rejoice and give God the glory! Amen.
