Discovering God - Part 5: God for Us

The gospel tells the story of adoption. We have the invitation into the family, with all the rights and responsibilities that come with that.

In our trials he will fight for us, and we can be assured that if He is fighting on our behalf, and there is no enemy that can defeat Him, then there is no enemy that may defeat us. This should free us to live lives of hope and joyful confidence in God. We should be fearless and standing strong in the face of the storms of life.
