What, then, can we say about all of this? If God is for us, who can be against us? The one who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for all of us-surely he will give us all things along with him, won’t he? Who can bring an accusation against God’s chosen people? It is God who justifies them! Who can condemn them? Christ Jesus, who died-and more importantly, who has been raised and is seated at the right hand of God-is the one who is also interceding for us!Romans 8:31-34

Just some questions to help you unravel what Paul is doing.
I will be back.
