Our Victory in Christ

26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for (A)we do not know how to pray as we should, but (B)the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and (C)He who searches the hearts knows what (D)the mind of the Spirit is, because He (E)intercedes for the [a]saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that [b]God causes (F)all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are (G)called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He (H)foreknew, He also (I)predestined to become (J)conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the (K)firstborn among many brethren; 30 and these whom He (L)predestined, He also (M)called; and these whom He called, He also (N)justified; and these whom He justified, He also (O)glorified.

31 (P)What then shall we say to these things? (Q)If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who (R)did not spare His own Son, but (S)delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring a charge against (T)God’s elect? (U)God is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who (V)condemns? Christ Jesus is He who (W)died, yes, rather who was [c](X)raised, who is (Y)at the right hand of God, who also (Z)intercedes for us. 35 Who will separate us from (AA)the love of [d]Christ? Will (AB)tribulation, or distress, or (AC)persecution, or (AD)famine, or (AE)nakedness, or (AF)peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written,

(AG)For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly (AH)conquer through (AI)Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither (AJ)death, nor life, nor (AK)angels, nor principalities, nor (AL)things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from (AM)the love of God, which is (AN)in Christ Jesus our Lord.
