The One Meaningful Question to Ask of God

AS USUAL ON FRIDAYS I HAVE A GUEST CONTRIBUTOR. MY GUEST THIS WEEK IS THE APOSTLE PAUL!!!

THE 8TH CHAPTER OF HIS LETTER TO THE ROMANS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURATE CHAPTERS IN THE BIBLE. I SHARE SELECTED PORTIONS BELOW, PLEASE READ IT IN FULL..

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh…

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you..

For as many as are lead by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God…

For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance…

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose…

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

THAT LAST PART IS REALLY ONE QUESTION THAT IS MEANINGFUL TO ASK GOD. HE GAVE THE ULTIMATE, A PAINFUL GIFT TO HIMSELF, HOW SHALL HE NOT GIVE YOU OTHER STAFF?
