Transcript of Resting in the Father

Romans 8:31-39
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? . . . {nothing} will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
4 Proofs that God is for us:
Gives us all things
Admits no charge
Allows no condemnation
Never stops loving
The Principle
Justification with all its blessings convinces us of the love of God for us.
Giver of All Things
The gift of Jesus Christ from the Father declares He loves us and gives us all good things.
Did not spare His own Son
Gave Him up for us all
He will give us all things
Romans 4:25

“who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.”
He was a gift to us and for us.
Psalm 22:12-17

“12 Many bulls encompass me; strong bulls of Bashan surround me; 13 they open wide their mouths at me, like a ravening and roaring lion. 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast; 15 my strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws; you lay me in the dust of death. 16 For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet— 17 I can count all my bones— they stare and gloat over me”
Luke 22:52-53

“52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders, who had come out against him, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs? 53 When I was with you day after day in the temple, you did not lay hands on me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.”
He was a gift to us and for us.
Safety with the Father
The child of God who rests in the character of the Father has no fear before the Father.
Accusations
Are they true?
Where are they from?
We are aware of God's love for those that we have sinned against
We are aware that all sin is ultimately against God
We are aware of the wrath of God on all sin
Satan
Revelation 12:10

“And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.”
People
Matthew 5:11-12 "

11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
The claim that Christians are on the wrong side of history on cultural and moral issues is to say we are less than 'christ-like' and ignorant.
Comfort from the Father
You are Chosen
You are Justified
Isaiah 54:17

“no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”
Isaiah 50:7-9

“7 But the Lord God helps me; therefore
I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame. 8 He who vindicates me is near. Who will contend with me? Let us stand up together. Who is my adversary? Let him come near to me. 9 Behold, the Lord God helps me; who will declare me guilty? Behold, all of them will wear out like a garment; the moth will eat them up.”
Jesus sets His hope on the Truth
Jesus sets His hope on the work of the Father
Jesus sets His hope on Eternity
Resting in Justification
Justification means we are 'in Christ'
God's choice comforts us
