For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear,
but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba,

Romans 8, 14 - 17
|And we know that in
all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have
been called according to his purpose.
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the

"For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor
demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will
be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus
Romans 8, 28 - 39
