What is on my mind.

Bible Study on Romans: God is For Us! Pt. 2: Romans 8:32

Summary: We have a vastly giving and generous God. Often we are deceived into thinking that God has short-changed us. Nothing could be further from the truth. The measure that God is for us is that He sacrificed His only Son, and “delivered Him up for us all.”

1. A. What are four things that God does for all Believers from Romans 8:30?

B. In what tense are these graces of sovereignty, and what is the significance? What does this tell you about God’s loving preparations He made for you? (Jer. 31:3, Rom. 9:23-24, 1 Pet. 2:9, Titus 3:4-7, Eph. 2: 4-7, Rom. 5:8-10, 2 Thess. 1:10-12).

C. Do you speak and act as one chosen of God? (Eph. 2:10, 1 Thess. 2:12)

2. A. How is God described in Romans 8:31?

B. How strong is the “if,” and how would you support this from the context?

C. Identify the “who’s” that may be against you. Knowing God is for you, how does that change your perspective?

3. A. How can we be certain that the Lord is for us from Romans 8:32?

B. Describe Paul’s argument of the greater to the lesser. Since God holds nothing back, not even His only Son, what does that mean for us? (Rom. 5:8, John 7:37-39, 1 John 4:10, 2 Pet. 1:3).

C. It has been said, “The measure that God is for us is that He gave us His Son.” How have you responded to this? Have you committed yourself to Him and are you turning away from your sins? (John 1:12, 1 John 1:5-9)

4. A. What does God withhold from His dear children according to Ps. 84:11 and James 1:17?

B. If God withholds no good thing from those who walk uprightly, then why do we as Christians sometimes feel deprived? (James 4:3-8)

C. Proverbs 4:23 says to, “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.” Do you have any of these sins to deal with: Ingratitude/thankless heart? Unbelief? Selfishness? Pride? Self-will? Lust of the flesh? Materialism? Neglect of the Scriptures and prayer? (Is. 30:15, 1 Thess. 5:16-18, Ezra 7:10).

5. A. According to Psalm 34:9-10, who are those not in want of any good thing?

B. What is the importance of fearing the Lord and seeking the Lord? How do we have everything we need by forgetting about our needs and pursuing God? (Prov. 2:1-5, Ps. 111:5, Luke 12:27-36, Is. 33:6, Matt. 6:33).

C. What is the goal of you heart? Have you made yourself expendable for the Lord Jesus? (Gal. 2:20, Phil. 3:8-10, Heb. 12:1-5).
