People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:11


Ro 8:11 But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead. The Holy Spirit. That Spirit in us is a pledge (see Eph 1:13,14) that God will raise us, even as Christ was raised from the tomb. Shall also quicken your mortal bodies. Though the body be doomed to death "because of sin", it shall be given life for those who have God's Spirit dwelling in them. Even our mortal bodies shall be raised, not in corruption, but in incorruption (1Co 15:42-44).

    Verses 38 and 39 show that absolutely nothing, not even death itself, can separate us from God's love. That is such a comforting thought of how deep and powerful God's love is.
  • Bob Hucik
    There's more than sufficient evidence in this chapter of this letter to satisfy all who hunger for righteousness. Article 30 explains that if one repents, is baptized in the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ you WILL receive the Holy Ghost. With the very Spirit of God residing in the one who follows Him they will they will diligently seek to see His Face and follow Him as a bride to wed Him-TRUE LOVE!
