In the previous article we learned no one has the authority to bring a charge against us. Now, we will now examine the fifth question Paul Poses as we continue to study the questions Paul uses to emphasize the believer’s eternal security in Romans 8:31-39.
In this article we look at the question posed in Romans 8:34 Who is he who condemns?
The very next sentence in the verse gives us the answer; “It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.”
This is significant. It is Christ who will be the judge. As we just learned Christ died to save those he brought near. That means those who he saved which have been justified through His blood are safe from condemnation. We are secure in Christ.
Christ is our Advocate
It was Christ who was condemned in our behalf, paying for our sins on the cross. Our penalty has been paid in full by Christ, leaving us free from condemnation. Nobody has the power to condemn us.
As a believer, if anybody tries to make you believe your salvation can be taken away remember we have a strong advocate in Christ. The final part of verse 34 lets us know Christ is constantly making intercession for us.
Remember our salvation is secure in Christ. So, if anyone tries to lay a charge against you, remember Christ is at the right hand of God, interceding for us. This makes it impossible for anyone to lay a charge against us.
We can never lose our salvation as our salvation is securely in the hands of Christ.
