Safe In Christ

Romans 8:38-39 gives an exhaustive list intended to cover every possible fear we could have—issues of mortality, supernatural forces, time, powers, physical space, anything in creation—and proclaim that none of them are able to separate us from God’s love. “If I hold a wooden pencil in my hands, I can break it easily. But if I insert the pencil inside a stout wooden dowel with a hole running through it, I will not be able to break it. Just so, Christians are safe because they are “in Christ’” (Constable, Notes on Romans, 137).’
