“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Romans 8:37, NLT)
“The underlying foundation of the Christian faith is the undeserved, limitless miracle of the love of God that was exhibited on the Cross of Calvary; a love that is not earned and can never be … We are super-victors with a joy that comes from experiencing the very things which look as if they are going to overwhelm us.
The undiminished radiance, which is the result of abundant joy, is not built on anything passing, but on the love of God that nothing can change. And the experiences of life, whether they are everyday events or terrifying ones, are powerless to “separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39).
