An Amazing Promise

The Bible is full of promises, God’s good will to His people. God’s promises are described as “great and precious” and indeed they are. Sometimes there is a particular promise that we come back to over and over again, and for me that promise is Romans 8:32. It is an amazing promise that covers every facet of our lives.

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

Puritan John Flavel wrote the following regarding this passage:

How shall he not call them effectually, justify them freely, sanctify them thoroughly, and glorify them eternally? How shall he not clothe them, feed them, protect and deliver them? Surely if he would not spare this own Son one stroke, one tear, one groan, one sigh, one circumstance of misery, it can never be imagined that ever he should, after this, deny or withhold from his people, for whose sakes all this was suffered, any mercies, any comforts, any privilege, spiritual or temporal, which is good for them.
