***Rejoice, Rejoice, Rejoice!

       In today's reading II from Romans 8, Paul wrote, "If God is for us, who can be against us?" People are against us precisely because we are for God. Jesus said that he had come to bring not peace but the sword. (Matthew 10:34) Precisely because he is our God and our judge, we end up being for him or against him. Rejoice that we and God are for each other.
       Paul wrote more, "He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him?" We gain Jesus and everything the Father has is ours! Rejoice again.
        Last, Paul said, "Who will bring a charge against God's chosen ones? It is God who acquits us, who will condemn?" No one will be able to condemn us, since we are already God's! Nothing can possibly separate us from the love of God. Rejoice one more time.
