What would change if you really understood all that God has done and is doing for you?
Sure we know in our head that God is for us, that there’s great hope in his relationship with us and salvation for us, but sometimes these truths can be hard to believe in the midst of exhaustion, busyness, and a world of spiritual and physical opposition. If God Is For Us is a devotional Bible Study on Romans 8 designed to cement in your soul the great truths of our salvation and an understanding for how the Holy Spirit guides our new life in the Spirit, all found in this beloved chapter of Scripture.
So often we encounter the message of Romans 8 in fragments, its best-known verses lifted from their context and lightly quoted to suit the need of the moment. With a careful hand, Trillia Newbell mends our fragmented reading by guiding us into the text, orienting this crucial chapter within the book of Romans as a whole, and tracing its cohesive message from start to finish. If God Is For Us is six weeks well spent for any earnest student of the Bible.Jen Wilkin
If the Bible were a mountain range, it is said, Romans 8 would be its highest peak. I can say after reading this study that Trillia Newbell is a sure-footed mountain guide that will help you climb this great passage and get some of its best breathtaking views of God and our salvation in Christ. I highly recommend this volume!Tim Keller
Some in the church eschew discipleship and study because they “don’t have time” or “don’t know how.” Written like a letter from a good friend, If God Is For Us offers a deep and digestible look into Paul’s intimate writings in Romans 8. Trillia explores in detail the radical, existential transformation made possible through Christ. If you’ve hesitated on Romans because it seems overwhelming, If God Is For Us is an excellent doorway to understanding, living, and sharing the “exchanged life.”K. A. Ellis

Within these pages, Trillia serves as a faithful guide to help you better understand and apply God’s Word to your life.Russell Moore
Like a delicious meal, Romans 8 is packed with truths to be savored as they are slowly enjoyed. If God Is For Us helps us to slow down and ponder the riches in this beloved chapter line by line, one verse at a time. Trillia Newbell’s warmth and wisdom will guide and encourage you with truths that will refresh and revive your soul.Melissa Kruger
