Scripture Reading from Mom’s Funeral: Romans 8


Romans 8

1. There if therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
5. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the spirit, the things of the Spirit.
11. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
18. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
27 -28. Now He who searches the hearts know what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the Saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
31-39. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things. Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and further more is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written for your sake we are killed all day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors thru Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers nor things present nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
