Se Deus é por nós. . . 1/15/07

As you enter Joseph's room you are met with a 1 meter wide sign which reads: "Se Deus é por nós, quem será contra nós?" Portuguese for Romans 8:31 (If God be for us, who can be against us?). As Joseph moves into his new university classes and continues in physical therapy he does so with confidence and enthusiasm. Why? one might ask. He understands who his partner is and knows the battle is lopsided when you are the right side. We appreciate his determination and enthusiasm and think of the end of that chapter in Romans:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? . . . For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
