Surety of Salvation – Romans 8:24-39 [Sermon]

Paul in this passage begins his concluding arguments to the superiority of the gospel over everything of the Old Testament. The objective, firm and pointed discourse on the gospel which began from chapter 1 aptly ends here by delving into the security of Salvation. What is the guarantee that God will see through the new work he has begun and succeed? To answer this question, Paul brings three vital truths- namely being the prayer of the Spirit, glorification of the Saints and the love of the Son.After having established the surety of Salvation, the pertinent question we believers will have to answer is – how shall we respond to such a teaching? Can we allow complacency and laziness slip-in, given that our souls are secured?
