If Christ is indeed our constant intercessor, how is it possible for us to be separated from His love? Paul maintains that it is not possible, saying, “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, is able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8: 38 – 39)
Paul is sure. He is convinced. He knows that Jesus intercedes for us. One who intercedes on our behalf does not turn and condemn us.
Paul says, “It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn?” (Romans 8: 33, 34)
There is no comparison between the one who justifies and the one who tries to condemn. The one who justifies us is God Himself in the Person of Jesus Christ. The one who condemns is our enemy, the one who fell from heaven, the one crushed by Eve’s seed even as he bruises her seed’s heel
Let us rejoice — God is for us; who can succeed against us?
