Choosing words from Paul the Apostle, Romans 8

Our Romans Bible study has gotten to Romans 8, the last third of the chapter. We were trying to decide which verses to memorize. Help me decide!

How about this one:

28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

That’s one to keep in the wallet, all right. Especially when “all things” aren’t going right. Let’s keep the glorious end in view.

And how about this one:

31 “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 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?”

Now, there’s one for a rainy day!

And this one:

35 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”

Another one for dark days!

And this one:

38 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Which one would you pick?
