Romans 8:18-37.

Paul comes back to the reality of our suffering and struggles (see chapter 5) and here sets it squarely alongside Christian hope. Hope dwarfs suffering. It puts it in the shadows. How? Because “in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us” (vs. 37). Therefore, nothing can separate from Christ’s love, or stop us from “living the Gospel” – nothing – not ever!
