New International Version:
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”(Romans 8:32)
New Living Translation:
“Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?”
“If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?
Contemporary English Version:
“God did not keep back his own Son, but he gave him for us. If God did this, won't he freely give us everything else?”
Beloved, God will never keep back anything from you as His child. His giving His Son is a proof that He will give to you all things that you need. He that has given the greater gift(Jesus) will not withhold the less(Your needs). He will give you all things that may be needful for your welfare graciously and freely. His first great gift, that of His Son, was a free gift; and all other things you may need will be given in a similar manner. It is not by money, nor by any price,nor by your merit, but it is by the mere mercy of God; so that from the beginning to the end of the work it is all of grace. Jesus is more than all the world, or than all other gifts and blessings whatsoever. If you give a diamond you may well give a box to keep it in. In God’s gift,the lesser will follow the lead of the greater; and whatsoever a man can want, it is a smaller thing for Him to bestow, than was the gift of His Son, which is the greater. So, don’t worry yourself because He is always there for you!
