The security and blessings of the believer in Christ are reviewed in a series of powerful and greatly encouraging arguments:

  • If the infinite Creator God has declared Himself to be for us, what lesser being can be against us in such a way as to prevail?
  • If God has given us His only Son, the most precious and valuable Being in the universe, how can He hold anything back from us that is for our good?
  • If God has pronounced us innocent because of what Christ did in His life and in His death upon the cross, who is there who could enter into God’s court and bring an accusation against us that can be made to stick and result in our condemnation?

Such is their security and certain salvation that, in Christ, believers overwhelmingly conquer all forces, both natural and spiritual, and every circumstance in which they could ever find themselves here on earth.

We are encouraged to see our circumstances in the light of this truth. We are also reminded that these promises apply only to believers. Unbelievers are once again urged to turn from their sin and trust their all to Christ who alone can grant them this salvation and security.
