Romans 8 is packed with such a preponderance of spiritual truth, it will never in a lifetime disappoint any thirsty soul who comes to its spring to drink. One of its most staggering promises is found in verse 32. The fact that God would not spare His own Son but instead deliver Him into the hands of evil men who mocked Him, tortured Him, and crucified Him, must never cease to astonish us. Jesus took the full force of the wrath of God that we deserved. It is the hour of Christ’s greatest glory, and we shall sing praise to the glory of His grace forever: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain.”
What amazes me about this verse is that the basis of its promise is this most important event in all of history. Because God displayed His greatest glory in delivering up His Son for us all, we will never be in want of any good thing. Because He took care of our greatest need, He will not ignore any other real need. He knows the things we need before we ask. Therefore we should never be discontent during our brief and temporary life now because of the infinitely satisfying reward that awaits us with Him in glory. The ultimate reward in heaven is God Himself, and we will know Him and love Him and enjoy Him forever. Blessed be His Name!
