'For Us' in the Bible
Now these words were not written simply for his sake, but for us as well.
But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
who was surrendered to death because of the offences we had committed, and was raised to life because of the acquittal secured for us.
and that this hope never disappoints, because God's love for us floods our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
For when we were yet weak according to the time: Christ died for us which were ungodly.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Knowing this, that our old man was crucified together, that the body of sin might be left inactive, for us no more to serve sin.
But now we have been released from the law, having died to what we were held, so as for us to serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of a document.
[But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us!
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who [i.e., what] can separate us from Christ's love [for us]? [i.e., what unfortunate circumstance of life might suggest that Christ does not love us?] Would [it be] trouble? Or distress? Or persecution? Or inadequate food? Or inadequate clothing? Or danger? Or [even] death?
nor [things] above, nor [things] below, nor any [other] created thing will be able to separate us from God's love [for us], revealed through Christ Jesus our Lord [Note: The idea of this passage is "Regardless of what happens to us, God still loves us"].
is not the potter the master of his own clay, of the same mass to make one vessel for use and ornament, and another for a meaner purpose?
What if he means to show the wealth that lies in his glory for the objects of his mercy, whom he has made ready beforehand to receive glory ??24 that is, for us whom he has called from among the Gentiles as well as the Jews?
Then you will say, "Branches have been broken off for us to be grafted in."
O, how deep is the richness of God's wisdom and knowledge! How difficult [it is for us] to explain His judgments and how impossible [for us] to accurately track how He operates!
And this, knowing the time, that for us, the hour already is to be aroused out of sleep, for now nearer is our salvation than when we did believe;
As for us who are strong, our duty is to bear with the weaknesses of those who are not strong, and not seek our own pleasure.
For whatever things were written previously [i.e., in the Old Testament], were intended for us to learn from, so that we could have hope [i.e., in the face of difficult times] through remaining steadfast, and through the encouragement [received] from reading the Scriptures.
