When did your heart start to wake up to God? Can you pinpoint when you fully understood the victory of Jesus?

The promise of victory is a foundational truth for how we understand ourselves, engage in growing with Christ, and engage in loving others. The promise of victory states that you cannot mess up enough to leave the dominion of God's love, and you cannot condemn yourself enough to be separated from the love of Christ.

If God is powerful, who can bring a charge against the most powerful one? If God is justified, who could condemn that justification? Can anything separate us from the love of God? Through scripture, we are convinced that nothing can separate us from the love of God. When we are confident of this, we can step into our lives differently.

As a reminder, here are the three questions we ask each show:
1. What does the passage say?
2. What's the backstory, what's the context?
3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage?

Today's Scripture:
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." [j]

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

In this series, we're going to walk through the idea that Jesus is the teacher, and his classroom is your life. Your experiences, your struggles and joys, all of that is the living stuff that Jesus uses to teach you about himself and the kingdom of God.
