God on our side?

So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us?

Romans 8:31-32

"If God is on our side then who can be against us?" I've heard that quoted in rallying the troops for wars, evangelistic crusades and battles against errant Christians. "Victory we have in Jesus' name".

But the next verse doesn't match up with triumphalism at all. "Embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst" is about humility, long suffering and servanthood. What would happen if we extended the word 'us' to include people with whom we don't see eye to eye?

What do you see as you read these words?
