When I was a senior in high school, this was our school’s verse – Romans 8:31 – if God is for us – who can be against us? That’s when I first learned of this verse because it was on everything that year.
Now that I’m 25 years older, I find it definitely more life-changing and endearing to my Father than I did when I was 18.
Trillia Newbell is a gifted, articular author who writes a great Bible study on Romans 8. It is by far one of the most popular chapters of the entire Bible, and she walks you through the 39 verses with precision. She doesn’t just give you the answers and she just doesn’t tell stories. She makes you work for it. Bible study is work. It isn’t supposed to be easy.
But, even if you are a beginner, pick this study up – because the beginning of the book walks you through how to be a Bible study beginner: what you need to do read, look for, meditate on, etc. But, if you have been studying your Bible every day for 30 years, then this study is also for you – because the Bible is still for you. And you can go as deep as you want to go and never mine all the depths of God’s Word.
Isn’t that a beautiful thing? That we will never get all of the Bible! No! It is life-giving and perfect truth for us – and the Holy Spirit will always use it in our lives!
Pick up this one. It is a 6 week study so it would be a good one for a group study or a personal study. And have a notebook nearby so you can write down all the things that God teaches you through it.
